We took our regular saturday morning drive out to the house, hoping to catch a tradesman at work so we could gain entry and poke around. Lucky for us, we found several painters hard at work. By the time we had arrived, at least 80% of the paintwork was done. Apparently they started on Thursday. The internal walls are painted in Taubmans Pebble Bay, and the skirting are Crisp White. They also painted the eaves, drain pipes, front, laundry and internal doors, exterior cladding and the front feature wall. The kitchen benchtops are in, along with the benchtops in the bathrooms. The wet area tiling is all done and looks fantastic, cant wait to see the rest of the flooring complete. By sunday all the painting was completed.
Our builder has told us that they will have us in before christmas, a good 3 months early!
I had expected the front feature wall to be a dark red, but the colour is actually much ligher than expected (more than the photo shows).
Sometimes that small colour chart you have to choose from yeilds unexpected results!
We celebrated today by purchasing a lovely new leather lounge suite that should be available as soon as we move in.
Next: the bathroom fitting go in on thursday. After that the remaining items are the electricals, internal door handles, aircon, tiling and carpets for the bedrooms.
