Day 212 – Latest review of progress – Electrical Fitoffs

7 06 2013

powerpointIts been awhile since we have provided an update on the house.  This week Kristen met our Site Manager, Simon, on site for some plantation shutter measurements and to get an update on progress.  Things have been progressing well and looks like we can finally say we will have handover NEXT MONTH !!!  (assuming things keep going well).

Last time we saw a lot of the plumbing happening.  This time around we have seen a lot of the electrical fitoffs being done.  Many of the powerpoints, tv aerials and data points have been installed.  All the light fittings have been done including the light bulbs.

Many of the door handles have started to appear and the robes now have mirrored doors installed and fitted out with rails.  Also the windows have been cleaned and the fly screens have been installed.

We have lights!

We are looking forward to replacing the light fittings with LED downlights and last weekend we have started to visit some lighting stores – we will need to purchase around 84.  That’s a lot of downlights!

Sitting Room – Kristen loves the feature wall!

During the electrical appointment we weren’t sure if we should got with 2 or 3 stair lights.  In the end we went with 2 and we are more than happy with our decision.

A few things that still need following up:

  • A powerpoint in the kitchen needs to be relocated due to it being in the way of the glass splashback.
  • Water not draining properly along one side of the house
  • Brick mortar need fixing near kitchen (brick cleaners blasted some of the mortar out)
  • Laundry splashback still needs to be completed – looks like not enough tiles were ordered.
  • Pillars need to be re-rendered
  • Gables need fixing as it was not installed properly
  • Some replaster and plaster fixes

It’s really great to see things progressing well.  Floors should start sometime next week.
