Its game on!!

Its been an eventful couple of weeks, and therefore very little time for doing any posts.  With so many work commitments on we have had very little time available to have a look at progress at the block.  At the moment we only get access to the house at our weekly meetings with our Site Supervisor.  Its really great to see our Site Supervisor has kept the pedal to the metal.

Since our last post all the tiling is complete including grouting and the whole internals painting finished.  The painters had the whole house "wrapped" for a week completing their work.  Here are some photo's of the progress so far -
Floor tiling in Main Bathroom complete

Ensuite with the wall tiling complete.  The floor tiles we covered with plastic while painting was completed.

Ensuite Shower recess.  The tile on the back wall is actually "Silk Olive", but unfortunately the photo doesn't pick up the variations/design of the tile very well.

Walls, ceiling architraves and skirting have all been painted.  We're a little unsure now about painting the architraves and skirting in the same colour as the wall, "Mosaico".  We are hoping that it evens out a bit when we start painting a few feature walls after handover.

Looks like such a looooong hallway.

There is still a fair bit of work to be completed outside including to the colonial feature poles.  This last one needs to be bevelled off (like the poles in the photo below) and the feature trim added to the poles.

We have also had our shed almost completed about a month or so ago.  Unfortunately, the industrial style garage door that was delivered to the block was damaged and could not be installed.  The shed was due to be totally completed over 1 month ago, but the shed builders have had no end of dramas trying to get the supplier to fix/repair.  To date, we still have a garage door with a bad bend in the roller.  Its getting close to name and shame time for this supplier with a clear recommendation not to use them.  Stay tuned and we'll post the outcome to this one.
The next weeks are going to be really busy and it looks like we will definitely have handover before the end of November.
