Day 80: Painting

It's been a while since I visited the site so I was hoping that there would be a lot of work already done, and there are.

First of is that the top of the porch is finally put on. It is like one of the main features of the facade so I am very happy to see it.

And I notice that the bricks looked different and upon closer inspection, it is because they already cleaned it.

But a bit worried with the image below as the damp-proof plastic used is showing and sticking out of the bricks.

And also, they have started painting the walls, ceilings and doors.

And they still have not fixed the benchtops and I still don't have my smart wiring.

Day 68: Benchtop and door issue meeting

D.X. called me today to set-up a meeting regarding the issues with the benchtops and doors. Got there around 2PM and he was actually there waiting for me. I showed him that the doors in the master bedroom, bed 3, bed 4 are wrong. Also, the benchtops are wrong as they are not bullnose profile. He acknowledge it and said that he will have a meeting with the team back at the office to find out what happened.

I also asked him again what's happening with the smart wiring cabling and he said he had no idea but assured me that it will be done as it was in the package.

Bricking is also finished and architraves are all done.

Day 67: Benchtop and door issue

Well, I emailed E.R. today regarding the wrong profile on the benchtop and the wrong door styles installed. The doors should be easily fixed but I am not sure about the benchtop profile.  I re-checked our colour selection and the benchtops should be bullnose and not square edge.

E.R. just replied that she already forwarded my email to the construction team to see if they ordered the items correctly..

Day 66: Cabinets, We Got Cabinets

Happy Mother's Day!!!!

And N was really happy to see the kitchen cabinets and benchtops. She kept on bragging that she chose the colour combination and they look beautiful. Who knows what will happen if I disagree.

You know what's wrong with the photos above.. I ORDERED A BULLNOSE EDGE PROFILE!!!!! Need to quickly sort this out with E.R.

The ensuite that N keeps on saying has a ridiculous colour combination. I reckon its perfect. Guess who chose the combi. :D



Master bedroom door (WRONG DOOR STYLE!!!!)

Bedroom doors (WRONG DOOR STYLES AGAIN!!!)

A few more updates and photos below..

Facade is taking shape..

The expensive pergola

They finished the bricks in the garage

Well, still got a few issues. The lintel above the alfresco door has not been installed and they already put the bricks on and the plaster, so I am not sure how are they going to put that in. I saw that the framer already had the lintel made but it was just in the alfresco floor. And also the issue with the doors and the benchtop profile.

Gotta email E.R. quick. :D

Day 60: Plastering has started...

Went to the site to check on the outstanding issues with the pre-plaster inspection and was surprised that they have started plastering the walls. My initial reaction was, oh no, they hurriedly put the plaster on so that I won't be able to check if they fixed the issues. Well, they still have not fixed some of them but the critical ones (like the missing wall batts) they already did.

First off.. the facade taking shape.

Side bricks almost done

View from the entrance

Bricking still not done at the back of the house

These wall sarking got ripped and I had to fix them myself
