Not sure what corny line to start this week's post with, but the message is, 'nearly there!'
All work is traveling along nicely for a 1 June PCI, and our Independent Inspector is booked in for Wednesday 30 May.
We haven't had much communications from PD, unless we call them for something, which is a little disappointing, as there are a few question still outstanding. Our SS wanted to gauge our flexibility on keeping the plastic laundry trough as it is apparently quite hard to change, but we're going with the Stainless Steel one for many reasons. Not sure why it's so difficult to swap over, but I guess that's not really our problem.
The downpipes around the house were connected to stormwater, but there are still downpipes to be fitted on the facade (only 1 of the 3 is in), and all 3 will require painting. The colour coat of render went on (Dulux 'Time Capsule') and looks fantastic! Can't quite get the full picture on the facade as parts still require painting. The house also got cleaned which has made a big difference to the windows, benches and sinks, and the gas meter was fitted.
And last, but not least, the showerscreens went in over Friday and Saturday. We upgraded these from the standard Stegbar Softline style to their Grange semi-frameless ones... well worth it!
So from the 'high-level' list of things remaining from last week:
* Facade painting (it was stopped when they realised they had a leak)
* Telstra lead-in
* Site clean
We've finalised the landscaping plans (will post details during the week), organised the concreters and nearly sorted the fencing. The furniture for the new house is on track for delivery and the floors, wardrobes and blinds suppliers are all booked in! It's going to be a very busy 2 months, with a few weeks to settle in before bubs is due!
A door was left open on Friday night, so we were able to get in and take some pics...
|Facade almost complete. Downpipes and some painting to go.|
|Facade - reverse angle :)|

Massive kudos to the tiler.
|Kitchen looking good. Love the Island Bench. Splashback in this week|
|Shot from Kitchen back through the house.|
|Laundry, waiting on proper tub.|
|Alfresco area now completed.|
|Sunlight changes the colour a lot!|
|Which bright spark thought it would be clever to drill the door stop into a $4000 door?!|
So... cleary not much to go... hopefully next week's post celebrates practical completion!
