Update Photofest

We dropped past the house this morning to find that quite a bit has been done this last week. Starting with our water tank and attached pipework.

It was nice to see the garage door nearly all the way up as well...
But the main thing was the fact that nearly all of the tiling has been done! They only have to do a little more grout work along with the tiles for the front porch area and they should be done. Hopefully that should only take a day or two for them to do, but I will know more on Monday as our SS is going to the house to check on the progress and will let me know the next couple of stages leading up to the PCI... so incredibly exciting!!!!
Laundry Tub and Tiling

Balcony Tiles


Main Bathroom

Oh but wait there is more news - the reason we could get into the house today was due to the painters being there!!! That's right they have started the painting and they said that it should take about a week to paint the whole house along with the rest of the eaves/cladding!!
Will hopefully get a mid week update with pics of the finished tiles and the painting progress.

Kitchen In!

Well after many, many drinks on Saturday night, we stumbled past the house on Sunday afternoon to be pleasantly surprised with a delivery next to our new front door.

There was also a nice big pile of sand in front of the garage - we assume both are for the tilers which are scheduled for today to begin their work!

We then stumbled around the back and through the windows we spied this:

It appears it is all put together and just waiting the last few handles - plus they have to adjust the window frame as it appears that it will not fit with the bench in place in its current form.

Hopefully later this week our SS can give us a rough timetable as to completion as we have a few things to book in shortly....getting exciting now!!!

Garage Door and Kitchen!

Popped past after work today with just enough light left to see: we were pleasantly surprised to find out that we have had our garage door fitted! We are really happy with how it looks and think that once the rest of the painting/render is done it will look fantastic.

Also we saw through the window that our kitchen (and assume bathroom vanities) have been delivered! Hopefully they can get them fitted in the next day or two so the tiling can start next week as per what our SS had hoped. Fingers crossed!

They're Back!!

Well we popped past the house again yesterday after work and discovered that a few things have been done in the last couple of days. Mainly all the doors have been fitted along with all the skirting boards and architraves and the waterproofing in the laundry. This leads us to believe that this should also have been done upstairs but as we cannot get it to check we will just have to hope.

Unfortunately I do not have any pictures as it was absolutely bucketing down with rain and we were just grabbing glimpses through windows. We will try and catch a tradie on site sometime in the next week or two so we can get in and get some pics.

So the next stage for us I believe should be the delivery of all our kitchen cabinets followed by the tiling!!! So very exciting!
