22.7.11 - Plumber

The plumber was there today doing all the toilets. Finally they arrived. I went in and discovered so much water in our laundry.  There is obviously a blockage in the pipes. We have had so much rain and is a good test. The guys were really good about it and went and bought a bucket & mop to clean it up. Glad it happen now and not after we moved in. The driveway couldn't get done because of the rain.

21.7.11 - Wardrobes

All the wardrobes have been done as well as the linen cupboards. No one else there. Still no tiler.

20.7.11 - Pantry fit out

A guy came to fit out the pantry, he wasn't the happiest of guys to talk to you. First person that hasn't spoken to us through out our whole building experience.  Every other trade has been outstanding. Needless to say it looks good.  The painter was there again doing finally touch ups where other trades have marked the walls. The maintenance guy was also there.

19.7.11 - No tiler

Still no tiler. The carpenter came and finished off the architraves and door handles.

Our SS has been sick Friday & Monday. The sander will be there tomorrow to do under the stairs. The maintenance guy will be coming and the painter will be finished Thursday/Friday. The plumber has to come back for the toilets, plus the mirrors and shower screens, pantry and wardrobes have to be done.  The driveway is booked in for 21/7, depends on the weather. Hopefully the PCI will be next week.

18.7.11 - Painter & splash backs

The painter was there. The guy from Di Lorenzo tiles came and delivered one box of tiles so they can finish it off.  He picked up on a few more things they need to fix like the front porch tiles.  He advised they will be back tomorrow.  Yeah right.  I will believe when I see it.

The glass splash backs went in and I love them. The carpenter should be there tomorrow to put in remaining architrave.

16.7.11 - Plumber

The plumber came today and did as much as he could. Reece plumbing didn't deliver the toilets so they will have to come back to do it.

15.7.11 - Tiler

The tiler finally came back.  He was two tiles short to finish off our ensuite. SO still not done. Who knows when they will be back.

14.7.11 - Painter only - no tiler

13.7.11 - Painter and tiler

The painter stained the front door and hand rails and abit more other painting. The tiler took up the tiles outside the laundry, the main floor tile should of been there. They also fixed the other things that Di Lorenzo picked up.

The tiler was starting the rumpus room and is getting there.  The tops for the vanity's arrived and have been installed as well as the sinks at on.  They look really good and so big.

The site got cleaned up and looks much better. Felt like a cast of thousand there today. The painters were there, the electrician finished off and the whirly bird is in. The main floor tiles were also delivered today ready to go.

1.7.11 - Painter

The painter did all the 1st coat and looks really good and very happy with it.  Always nervous until you see it altogether.  We chose these colours so long ago.

Spoke to SS. He advised the tilers have now been delayed because they are taking to long and not coming so they tiler should be coming Tuesday/Wednesday to start to main floor. The gyprock guy to come Tuesday/Wednesday to fill in under the stairs. Plumber should be there Wednesday and the painter back on Thursday/Friday.The glass for the shower screens was order on 22/6 ready to go after the tiler is finished. Caesar stone for vanity has to come before the plumber can come.

30.6.11 - Painting

The painters turned up and the sander was still going upstairs.  I love the colour of the paint and can't wait to see it all up on the walls. We chose two colours, it is white smoke on the architraves and Colonial on the walls.

29.6.11 - Tiler & sander

The tiler turned up he grouted all the tiles in the bathroom but no main floor tiles started.  The sander was also there doing all the walls and ceilings.  Our  garage door went on and looks great.  Finally no one can get in now.
