Week 23

18/6/14 - Called past the house this afternoon expecting to see our flooring installed, and was disapointed to find it hadnt been done :(. Was able to get in the back door (tried to lock it but it seems as though the lock is stuffed) so was able to take better photos of our appliances, and saw that the linen press and wardrobes have been fitted out, and that the door handles, door stops etc have been laid out in each room ready to be installed.

We were also advised by our SS that PCI will be next thursday 26/6/14 @ 8am. We are so excited. Handover will be a week or so later, no major rush as hubby cant get time off, due to his FIFO roster until 13th July so I will probably have to do handover myself, which is ok, I will be able to give the house a really good clean, get the blinds up, furniture that we have bought delivered, and move over a few bits and pieces before he gets home.

19/6/14 - Flooring still hasnt been done, not sure whats going on there, but hopefully it happens today. Only 6 days to go till PCI. Our correct front door handle has finally been installed and it looks fantastic. From looking through the windows it looks like the fix out carpenter has started installing the skirting boards to the carpeted areas, door handles to wardrobes and internal doors installed, door stops put on and our main bathroom shower screen has been installed.

21/6/14 - Called past the house today hoping to find our timber floor being installed and to my suprise it was, and it looks great.

23/6/14 - Carpenter was back onsite today to install the rest of the skirting boards, ready for the painter to come back tomorrow to finish off all the internal and external painting. SS has also sourced some cedar feature cladding to replace with our current timber feature on the portico (note - this will now be merbau to meet bal requirments) . The style is alot wider than we would like but we are hoping that onces its installed and stained that it will look ok..... im sure it will be better than seeing the yucky glue marks that we can currently see. Our carpets will be installed on wednesday, and i'm presumming the cleaners will be in as well, as PCI is still on this Thursday. SS said we should receive our final invoice some time this week!

24/6/14 - Received a call late this arvo from the SS regarding our PCI. It has now been moved to friday afternoon @ 2pm due to him having to attend a first aid course on thursday. We are a little bit dissapointed, but its only 1 day.
Painters were back today to finish the painting. Was too dark by the time I drove past to see much but I could see that the section about the front window has finally been finished (note - not finished correctly, will need to be taken down and re-installed rendered) . Looking forward to seeing it in the daylight.
