Sydney has certainly been having some wild weather recently so we went up to the block to see how it fared after yesterday’s deluge. I should have been brave and gone up during it to see how our storm water system of the rain tank and rain garden were coping.
Amazingly things didn’t look too bad today.
I hope no-one was in situ when the wind caught this on 313 !
The swales at the front were clear of water but full of rubbish. Hubby thinks I’m mad but I keep disposable gloves and rubbish bags in the car and clean up the swales after the tradies every so often. I don’t think our new neighbours across the way, who have already moved in, want to look out at empty tuna cans, Red Bull cans, carry out containers and builder’s rubbish strewn around. Six bags later it looked a lot better!
However, that was at the end of our visit, when we rocked up we were pleased to see:
Glass splashback time! 🙂
The tilers finished the main floors and Laundry on Wednesday and we have been well and truly locked out with no sneaking in to peek. With Decoglaze there we were able to pop in for a quick look around to see what’s been happening:
- Main floor tiling completed
- Laundry tiles completed
- Master robe, WIP & Cloak cupboard fit out
- Wire shelving corrected to walk-in-robes in beds 3 & 4
- Main bath display niche glass shelf fitted
- Glass splashback to Kitchen & Butler’s Pantry being fitted
There was a bit of storm water inside which is surprising as both the front door and balcony door have step downs to their porches. However they are to be fitted with draft excluders as part of our BAL 12.5 requirements for embers. I better check what form they take and if they’ll exclude water.
Here’s some photos of what’s been done this week:
Laundry: Not quite how the tile layout was specified
Master robes fit out:
Wire shelving in Beds 3 & 4 sorted:
Latte glass splashback in progress:
Bath display niche glass shelf:
The painters were busy next door at 310 and said they would be back to us on Wednesday November 11th which is great. Our SS’s text update this week said the gyprock would be patched up next week followed by the painters. Therefore I take it the gyprockers will be there on Monday. I’ve also had a call from Wisdom Landscaping this week to say the driveway will be done the week commencing November 18th. It’s all go 🙂 !
