Lots of action this week.
The tilers were back this week and laid the accent tiles in the bathrooms:
The wet rooms look finished apart from the Laundry where the single row of wall tiles are still to be laid. The en-suite WC needs to be sorted as the plans show it with full height tiling and no cornice. The gyprockers put cornice up then the tilers removed it.
Unfortunately when then finished it off they cut the tiles to allow for cornices. Hopefully there are enough tiles left to rectify this. They should be back next week to lay the main flooring downstairs. Apart from that hiccup I’m really pleased with the quality of their work and hope they do it to the same standard when they lay the 600 x 600mm porcelain main floor tiles.
Wednesday saw the robe fit outs:
Standard wire shelving in the store cupboard and linen:
Standard wire hanging in Bed 2:
Mix of single and double wire hanging in the walk-in-robes (WIR) in beds 3 & 4 for the boys:
Spot the mistake in bed 3 & 4….
The Master bedroom robes are fitted by a different company using Polytec Gesso Lini as part of the Wisdom Prestige inclusions.
Ooops…that’s interesting when I googled for a sample of Gesso Lini it’s not the colour I thought it was. I thought we chose the dark colour for the robe interiors. The choice was white, truffle lini or gesso lini.
Nevermind, it was so long ago, August 2014, and so fast paced a colour consultation down at Wisdom HO I probably remembered incorrectly. It’ll look good whatever the colour. Paperwork says Gesso Lini so Gesso Lini it is. The wardrobe people called me to double check the layouts as I am including double hanging and wanted to tweak the cloak layout. All sorted 🙂
Friday saw the electricians return for the electrical fit off. I needed to drop off the range hood for them to fit which gave me an excellent opportunity to check out the house. We changed to us supplying all the appliances a few months ago when the Blanco double oven was discontinued hence me having to deliver the range hood on site today.
No more monkeys jumping on the bed!
The electricians are powering through with the fit off. Fans are in and look like they could trim a few centimetres of anyone not paying attention!
Vanity power points seem very high up but it was set to the standard height.
Bumped into our SS on site and got my weekly update in person and a walk through 🙂
Free standing bath, Caroma Aura 1600, looks either rather low or not very wide, that’s one way to save water! Hope I fit in it!!
- Baths and toilets have been delivered ready for the plumbing fit off:
- Main floor tiling & ensuite WC correction
- Gyprockers back to make good and to line the rest of the understairs cupboard
