The last couple of weeks we have had the tradies doing their fit-offs.

The plumbers had a bit of trouble fitting the taps we supplied to the basins although they all came from the same plumbing supplies.

The Electricians fitted the ceiling fans (all 8 of them) and found most of the wires in the wall.

The ducted heating tech had to cut a couple of holes in the upstairs floor to find his ducts.

I've attached a couple of photos of the kitchen splash backs (or lack of in the case of the south wall). Lesson learnt is make sure the lousy Architects draw an elevation of the kitchen. We would have realised that the window was too big which sacrificed our splash back leaving a section on the left side and a ridiculous 10mm strip of red glass on the right.

... and what about those mighty Cats?

Things are moving very slowly now as I think 95% of the payments have been made (and the last 5% probably is owed to tradies anyway).
The tiler is in residence at the moment and seems to be doing a good job. The painter has finished inside (we made sure he had the right colour by sticking a sample card to the wall)
We have been busy sorting out flooring and have booked them in for early October after consulting with our SS (I feel this date may be optimistic but we'll push to have the builder out by then)
Whats more after 2 weeks in the ground our 7000 litre tank is full to the top!!!
