It’s been all go this week at the block:
- Painters – interior and exterior
- Air Con
- Balcony balustrade (partial)
- Door Furniture
- Towel rails & toilet roll holders
- Step down skirting
- Cooker Hood
- Site Clean
Cooker hood in, complete with finger prints. You can just see the top of my head reflected below the glass canopy so I’ll be needing a stool to reach anything other than the bottom shelf! Surely I’m not that short!! 🙂
Installing cooker hoods with glass splashbacks is a bit of a palaver. First the electricians fit the cooker hood then they remove it, then the splashback people come to measure up where all the holes etc are. The splashback is then made and once installed the electricians return to fit the cooker hood over the splashback. They did an excellent job of measuring it all up, the splashback join is hidden along the glass canopy edge.
With Wisdom you do not get the splashback behind the cooker hood as standard, that is an upgrade option during your Colours appointment at HO. If you wish it to have no joins you need to specify that and inform both Wisdom and the kitchen company so your plans document it.
The carpenters were busy:
Merbau front door now with weather seal so hopefully no more puddles
Gainsborough Lianna door handles in satin chrome
Home Theatre back to back bar door handle which I think must be gold plated for the price 🙂
Powder room towel rail
Toilet roll holder
Balcony balustrade fitted:
Hopefully the rest of it will be fitted this week and then the scaffolding can come down.
We also received our PCI letter confirming the date, December 1st , with handover 1 – 2 weeks later. The letter also told us they were claiming 24 rain days. Our Contract finish date was October 27th which I thought would mean we should have handover on December 1st not PCI.
What’s left to do:
- Driveway (booked for the week starting the 16th November)
- Remove protective wax coating on porcelain tiles
- Fit electrical plate covers
Plus fix their errors:
- Fix the rain garden!!!! (Fed up waiting for this to be corrected)
- En-suite WC tiling & coving
- Fit correct En-suite ladder towel rail
- Powder Room mirror
I have updated the ‘Our Construction Journey’ timeline in the Header bar. Well, truth be told, Mr IT worked his magic and updated the flowchart for me 🙂
