The tiles are practically all down bar 3 or 4 tiles at the front door, and for the most part the grouting has been done (Love the tiles!) The powder room is starting to look good, I'm looking forward to how it comes up when clean though! Door handles, towel rails and toilet roll holders are all in, and very shiny too :-) A few more toilets are in their places, I don't know if they are plumbed yet though.
Carpet is supposed to go in on Monday but I will be speaking with SS first thing as the creak in the master bedroom floor still isn't fixed despite SS saying the carpenter was going to fix it this week. They will have to rip up the carpet if they don't fix it!
A question for everyone; Our shower screen doors don't come down to the bottom of the shower, does this mean they are going to put one of those tacky lip things on it, or is it just designed that way? presumably all the water is going to spill out onto the floor?
The exterior balcony powdercoat aluminium balustrade has been delivered, Rick really dislikes it, I can't say I'm all that fussed on it either. It was in one of our cost cutting sprees....maybe we should have tried to find somewhere else to reduce costs, oh well, will see what it looks like when it's in and then maybe change it after hand over, there are DIY balustrade kits that have the aluminium wire that Rick likes so we will see what this one looks like and then decide from there.
I have received a few emails from readers that I haven't replied to yet sorry! I will get there ASAP!
Edit: I can't believe I left out the most important thing! We have a PCI and Handover date, only pencilled in of course, but looking at PCI for the 3rd August and handover on the 10th, I'm not getting too set on those dates just yet though...I will after the floor in the master is fixed, but that is more of a structural problem, I think?, which I really can't forsee being fixed quickly :-(
