Nearly there!

The house has moved along quick from my last blog post. Yesterday we had PCI - went in with our parents too, we figured the more eyes the better! Nothing major found wrong at PCI - a few pant touch ups needed here and there, biggest issue was a missing power point on the island bench! The conduit was put in, but it looks like the sparkies didn't finish the job! SS was on the phone straight away, and organized for it to be fixed today.
Handover is expected for Friday, busy time ahead for us!
I'll put some pics up once we get in there!

The niches!

Since our last update not a whole lot has happened. Things seem to be moving slower since lockup than it did before. Still can't complain, we are ahead of schedule!
The inside of the house is now finished being painted, and tiles are all in (with a few touch ups to come). We found an unlocked door yesterday so I got some pics! But it was very dark so they didn't come out great!
The tiles have had more done since these pics - grout is done and the niches have their splashback tiles in too.. Can't believe how much trouble we went through to get those niches!

Hate being Locked out

So not a whole lot to report.. Unfortunately being locked out makes it hard to get pics and see what's going on!
Painters have been in the past couple weeks, and should finish this week, and then the tilers will start.. Bricks were cleaned up on Saturday, apart from where they are going to render.

That's about all the news I have for now! Hopefully more in a couple weeks.

Fixing complete!

It's been a while since my last update.. I went to Sydney for work on the 22nd Feb, that day we officially reached lockup stage.
By the time I came back on the 29th we had finished the fixing stage. This went quick as they already started plastering before lockup was officially complete.
As of today we have cupboards and benches installed and painting is to start next week. Next stage is PCI which means we are getting close to the end of this journey!

Moving towards lock up!

We are steadily moving towards lock up. Don't know how long but we have the roof tiled an wrapped rough ins of gas water and electricals and bricks are just about finished. We have heating, cooling and data rough ins done, plaster and cornices are delivered and all the doors and windows are in now too.
We are moving along pretty well considering we only started Jan 4th! *touch wood*

Slab complete!

Pretty happy with the start to the year considering it is still early and some trades are still on holidays..
Jan 4th commencement
Jan 13th slab complete!
Threw some coins in last night before concrete was poured for good luck! Haha

Spoke to our SS briefly for the first time he said frames would start in a week as the guy is still in holidays.. But we are happy with that!
