Meep Meep!

Well well well.. where to start… first and foremost we are officially at LOCK UP stage!! WOOHOOO!!! We have been really slack in updating our blog, but everything has been happening so fast that we can’t keep up!!! We feel like Coyote trying to chase Road Runner! Our site supervisor has also given us an idea as to when we can expect to be in… late Jan, early Feb so we are both very excited and nervous as that timeframe is really not that far away!

So since our last update, we have had the gyprock completed (Absolutely LOVE the high ceilings – makes a HUGE difference), cornices done, waterproofing in wet areas done, cladding on the façade, internal and external doors hung, architraves fitted and our garage door installed… meaning we can no longer get into our house to see where we are at!!  Waaa waaaaaaa L

In the meantime we have been doing some more furniture shopping and have officially started our search for tiles and carpet! Woot woot!!

We’ll post more pics as soon as we can get in the house!

OH and how can I forget to mention, a big happy birthday to the Hubby!!  Love you bub.

Fully Connected

Thursday saw the completion of all the electrical’s, data and Home Theater pre-wire rough ins completed… Checked the plan and all looks A-OKAY!

Spoke with the sparky and the data fellas and gave the hubby some great advice about his home theater system. I couldn’t quite understand all their network, cat56, hi-fi, automation mumbo jumbo but the hubby has assured me that our home will be the ‘smartest’ home on the street….  Not sure that means?? 

In addition, they have made a start on the gyprock and have completed the ceilings already… MJH are ripping through our build, we can hardly keep up. We can’t believe we need to start buying furniture already – Hubby is dreading this but now my fun begins!!!

Ninja Brickies!!

Bricks delivered, laid and cleaned in 8 days WITH RAIN! Even had time to have a beer with them!

We know it’s been a while, but we have just been so busy with work lately and have had to urgently go overseas for family commitments, are why we have not had a chance to post on the recent completion of the brick work.

From what we know and can see is that they have done a ripper of a job …  mortar lines look all straight and consistent and WE ABSOLUTLEY LOVE OUR TROPICANA FAÇADE ENTRANCE!!  We’ve received so many compliments so far. Can’t wait until they render it and install the cladding… 

Also our eaves have been completed AANNNNDDD Still so far no issues to report on what so ever!!  :D

Anyway next post will be on the sparky, Data guy, ducted vac and the insulation.
