Landscaping and Electricals – our first and last appointment
We have had our plans back and signed them off after a few tweaks mainly to do with slab protection.
The large service free zone at the left hand side is a future pool and spa area but will be grassed until then. The bulk of the planting will be native species attractive to birds. The driveway and front paths will be flecked concrete all other paths will be matching non-flecked concrete. The alfresco area and pool will be travertine pavers.
We wait for the quote to carry out the works.

Our last but also the hardest appointment – so much to do in so little time.
As standard from Wisdom you get one light point and one double power point per room with the largest areas getting more. Well we put quite a few more in to say the least! Double power points became quads and we’ve probably still missed a plug or two around the place. Hubby put a lot of effort into what we would need and where, even going so far as to plan where the furniture (to scale) would go.
[Side note: This showed that we have the smallest bed in the household with the most occupants (the two of us, one rather belligerent cat and one very rotund cat).]
I imagined myself hoovering and steam cleaning around the place and seeing how far the electric flex would go then adding another socket. I have put a power point in the understairs cupboard for a future roomba robotic cleaner – very Jetson’s!
Probably end up as
We had a reasonable provisional allowance in the tender which we thought was a tad light but we blew that out of the water. We really could have done with a longer appointment in order to have the time to review it all thoroughly and feel less rushed but hopefully it is all good.
