In fantastic news the bedroom floor is fixed!!! No more squeaky floor boards! I haven't had a chance to talk to the SS about anything other than the glass balustrade this week and there were some tense phone messages - just glad it's pretty much all over...the glass guys have put a couple of pin holes in the side of the stairs and then decided to put the pin in a few millimetres to the left so these will need to be patched and painted..so we might need to do that ourselves...no biggie, so long as I don't have to deal with the glass guys again I will be happy - as will our poor SS!!! I bet he is cursing the previous CM for allowing it! All that aside it is in, and looks pretty good imo :-) The stair handle/rail appears to be where the reduced cost has come in, I can't say I am a fan and it is horrible for fingerprints! but it is just Rick and I, and I can make it up & down the stairs without using the hand rail so I think it will be the rule in our house - look but don't touch unless you are falling on your arse...then, and only then, may you use the handrail lol.
Other milestones this week included, house clean - the windows have come up great!, and mains power connected wooo hoo! The front balcony balustrade also did not go in so I can't comment about that yet, it's also been raining a bit too much for the balcony tiles to go on as well.
I'm not sure what next week will bring...presumably carpet, spa actually in the ensuite, and balcony balustrade, supposedly a window service...not much else left really! Lots of little things we have found like a mark on the caesarstone, there are a few holes in the wall that need patching/repairing, some paint bubbles and places that need re-sanding, a few bricks to be replaced, bits and pieces of things.
|Clean kitchen - pendants don't have globes yet, I keep forgetting to bring some!|
|more shiny tiles - still a row of grout to be done|
|Rain head showers in - upgraded so that the shower rail is behind the tiles.|
|Happy that he can finally fit into a bath!|
|Someone isn't planning to share...|
|one day it will have water too!|
