Plumbing still not all in but getting there, the plumber was there in the afternoon yesterday and has installed a toilet, a shower and a bath in the main bathroom area, but ensuite yet to be installed *eagerly awaits install of spa*
Air con guys have completed the fit off yesterday :-D
The data guys were there on Saturday and completed the data points, tv & phone points, intercom and ducted vac.
The glass balustrade is going in on Wednesday Yipeee!!
The tiler was supposed to have been there on Monday but is apparently running behind (so not there at all), but SS says he should be finished by Thursday.
The shower screens according the SS were supposed to go in a week and a half ago so presumably they will turn up sometime soon.
I have had our first curtain quote from Lincraft with their stocktake sale prices and with discount it came in at 10K jeepers!!! Ok so I may have picked a couple too many plantation shutters...but even the blockouts were a lot more expensive than I had expected! I budgeted 5k for curtains and blinds so clearly there is a lot of cutting back to do! I have another quote with Curtain wonderland this afternoon. I spent the 8 hours of my night shift yesterday scouring the internet high and low and have come up with a few good options (even started an excel spreadsheet!). I have ordered some samples so will see what we end up with. A couple of the places use the same fabric that Lincraft quoted on but at a much better rate, so hopefully I will be able to get most of what I want but a lot closer to budget! It was good to get an idea of colours and somewhat surprisingly silver seems to go quite well with the colour of the paint etc.
Also arranged last week for the phone & internet to be connected as TPG advise their turn around time is 10-20 business days! Which with a lot of hope and wishful thinking we could even be in in 20 working days!
We have a temporary cheap mailbox that we have attached to the fence with zip ties lol, and received our first real mail! (Rick had to renew his licence and didn't want to go through the hassle of changing the address in a few weeks time). For those interstate...yes QLD transport mail your licence to you!
