Day 149: Render complete, garage roof on and ktichen goes in

5 04 2013

Day149-3Wow, what a week Our Nolan has had. In addition to the stairs going in, we now have the final layer of render which  includes the colour, a roof on the garage and wait for it…. the kitchen!!! While the kitchen is not quite finished yet, the main cabinets and the island bench were installed today and it looks great. It’s always hard to know if what you choose from the tiny sample pieces will work together so to see everything coming together looking they way we wanted it to is a relief and and real thrill too.

Other items completed included water proofing to the wet areas and phone line connection from the house to the the Telstra pit on the nature strip. Once the weatherboard cladding at the rear is installed (next week) we should be getting close to lock-up completion.

Hi Chris and Kristen
I’ve been following your building blogs and found it to be very informative. I admire and appreciate your dedication in providing an insight and sharing your building experience. Your home looks awesome. I’m currently building with Metricon (Nolan 41) as well. I noticed that you guys had your stairs stained before hand over. Was that part of your contract or was it arranged with someone else external to Metricon? If it was external how much did it cost to get it done? My stairs is pretty the same as yours. I was told that I can only get it stained after handover.

thanks,
Don

Hi Don,

We did get Metricon to do the staining of the stairs. I later found out that this is something they don’t normally do and that we were ‘lucky’ to get this included.

Not sure why this isn’t something they do as standard.
