Garage doors

The two garage doors were installed on Thursday so the house is truely locked up.  Work will not start again until 10 January - we were unlucky to get caught in the Xmas break.


Our kitchen arrived on Monday and was installed on Tuesday.  The vanity in the main bathroom was also put in but not the ensuite.  This will be installed after the tiling as we are tiling right to the ceiling in both bathrooms.  Laundry cupboards also installed.

Bricks Cleaned

The eaves were started on Tuesday and the brick cleaner arrived late afternoon.  He spent 3 hours cleaning and when he finished I had a look from inside.  It is a complete disaster - there were holes in the walls everywhere - you could see spots of daylight where he had blasted out the mortar. His blasting was so hard the concrete porch is showing the black aggregate. The bricks look terrible with bits of mortar missing everywhere. 

The wall insulation was put in on Wed morning and the carpenters only worked 3 hours and then walked off the job as the house is surrounded by a moat of water as the SS has not yet put on the downpipes, The gyprock was delivered on Thurs but no one has been back to work on the house.
