Tiling is almost complete....

Was at the house yesterday and the tiling is almost complete, just the grouting to be done.  In the past week or so they have also done the electrical fit offs,  aircon and heating vents have gone in,  taps, outdoor powerpoints etc.

Painting is Finished, tiling to begin!!!!!!!

Weekly update.
The painters finished on Thursday and the tilers are due to start on Tuesday.  I am going to meet them at the house on Wednesday.  The other half met the SS at the property on thursday and  we are still on track for a late nov/early dec handover..............can't wait!!!!  The stair rail had also been stained and looked awesome apparently.  We chose the colour 'Charcoal" which is a very dark greyish brown from memory.  Will go take a look today or tomorrow and take some piccies.  And will definately post some this time :(

Painting is half way there!

So this weeks update is we have the house painted in first coat inside and a few areas of the facade have been painted also. Front door has had a coat, in the beautiful red colour we chose.  Was a little  nervous about it when we chose it , but I am really happy with how the colours are so far coming together!

We met with our SS yesterday and he told us we will have a handover date in the next few weeks for late November or early Dec.  Can't beleive how fast it is all happening.
