The tiler has commenced tiling and so far all the shower areas have been completed.


Bathroom 2

Master ensuite

Rain water

During the recent rain water has seeped in through the roof tiles into the rumpus. I got a glimpse through the batten holder and two holes where the roof tiles are not fitter together can be seen. I have advised the supervisor to get this fixed up and access if the plaster needs to be redone. But it does not look like any plaster needs to be repaired.

Painting has started

Its been a while since I updated with a picture of the front of the house. So here it is ..

Painters have commenced painting and should be completed this week. Painters started on Sat morning and when we checked in the evening they had covered the whole house with one coat along with the first coat on all the internal doors.

We are told the roof tiles will go in tomorrow (monday). Once the painting is completed next will be tiling.

Fix stage completed

The fix stage is complete with all internal doors hung, cabinets installed and portico and balcony rendered. The house is now locked up and we cannot get into the house unless there is someone working onsite who has the keys. This morning they completed the roof of the garage.
I think the next step will be to paint the house followed by tiling. Balcony floor still to be done.

Hail storms

All the internal doors have been hung - almost all except for a couple and they have started on the architraves. Went to the house after the big hail storm and was glad there is no hail damage and no leaks etc. The good thing now is that the work is not weather dependent as all the work is to be done inside and the tradies can work even if it rains, so hopefully there wont be any weather related delays. In this week we expect to see the internal doors, shelves, skirting and architraves completed.

Fix Stage started

All the cabinets in the kitchen and the 3 bathrooms were installed today. Basins and sinks have been delivered but not installed yet. It has now really started to take shape and is looking more and more like a house and gives a real feel of how the final product will look like. All the internal room and cupboard doors were delivered today and most likely will be installed within the next couple of days. All the shelving in the walkin robes, pantry and various cupboard will also be installed in this time frame.
The entire site has been cleared of all rubbish, I think they got a bob cat onsite this morning and clean up the site.
Current Issue: Niche in the study is missing and I have advised the supervisor to get that rectified.

The ladder going upstairs has been removed and stairs will be installed today. All the material for the stairs is onsite and the guys to install it also arrived this morning.
Cabinets for the kitchen and bathrooms will likely be installed on Thu and internal doors will be hung this week as well. Carpenter will be back by end of week to install all the internal shelves etc.
Painting should start mid march and is expected to continue for 7-8 days followed by tiling.
