This photo taken late Sunday afternoon. With one week left on this build, we hope this sky-writer is working for Carter Grange, with a simple message expressing some love our way as we near completion!
With a pre-handover walk-through scheduled for this Friday morning, CG still have a sh#@-load of work to complete. They say it will be done, who are we to question. We know carpets and floorboards are booked and will be done. We know the painter will be back on Thursday to finish off. We see major works being undertaken to rectify the slab issues, but it's yet to be confirmed when these works will be completed and certified. Same deal with render issues. All plaster works are pretty much done, except they still need to put cornices on the bulkhead above our laundry over-heads. Caulking and sealing still needs to be done. Plumbing works, including digging storm-water pipes much deeper (at present some or not even 50mm deep), still need to be done. Electrical works still need to be done. Glass splash backs and mirrors still need to be done.Fly screens and sliding mesh screens still need to be done. Handles still need to be done. Site clean and rubbish removal still needs to be done.
We had a look at CG display homes today to get a feel for how this business finishes everything off. We'll compare notes at the walk through
Here are some photos:
|Vinyl sliding doors in the laundry. We love our mega-spacious laundry. It really has that wow factor.|
You can also see the work down on the front portico. Due to the garage step down issues, the portico front edge will be exposed. To get around this CG have agreed to render the area directly beneath the rendered column.
Now the vapour barrier (black sheeting) has been replaced or repaired pretty much all around the house. This is along the front of the house.
The view from our living room, across our dining space and into the kitchen. We are thinking of painting the bulkhead.
One thing is for sure. It looks good and is highly functional. This was a really great variation.
