Site Visit and meeting with SS

Today we had a site visit and got to meet our SS. It was only a quick visit and nothing happening on site today but it was good to go through the inside and ask a few questions. Most of my concerns the SS knew about and had answers for straight away which was great. At the very end of the visit he said "you haven't asked the big question...when can you move in", we simply said we wanted a good job and didn't want it rushed and didn't know if it was too soon to ask yet. We will get stung by the Christmas shut down and holidays but will hopefully be in late-Feb. Our contract (including the Christmas extension) goes to end-March so I will just still base it on that.

Now for activity over the last few days... quite a bit actually. Garage doors have been installed, caesarstone bench and sink to the kitchen installed and tiling to all the wet areas completed. The SS actually admitted the tilers had caught him off guard as he thought they would still be there but they finished early!

now for some pics....

The garage doors
Pergola still to go above the left hand door

The front door and stairwell painted

The ensuite tiling
Vanity and tiling (mirror still to be put in)

The feature wall in the shower

Where toilet will be and window - tossing up between getting an obscure film added to the glass or shutters

Main Bathroom
I wish I had continuted the coloured tiling from the bath up that wall now - oh well definitely too late now!

Feature tile strip in the shower

and last but not least...


  1. looking fab. Looks like they will definitely be finished in February

  2. You must be excited that the house is so close to completion. It's a shame the weather always seems to hold things up! Your tiles look lovely, you've done a good job. :)
