Week 32 - Painting & Tiles

Painting continued this week and the rooms are starting to take shape.  All that is left is a few skirtings, architraves, doors, feature walls and touch ups.  They are doing a great job.  We are really happy with the three coat system.

The tiles have also been delivered.  The tilers started with a the laundry, powder room, main bathroom and toilet and minor ensuites.  Our SS told us the tiling should be done by the end of next week.

No further positive progress with the stairs....

Week 31 -Painting!

This week, the painters started inside.  We opted for the three coat system, so the whole process should take just about two weeks.

Unfortunately no progress on the stairs yet.

Week 30

After meeting with our SS this week, we have all determined that the stairs have either been incorrectly ordered or incorrectly built.  Now we are waiting on Boutique to determining which is the case and get the stairs re-ordered.  Hopefully this doesn't cause too much of a delay.

Over the next 2 weeks the painters will be on site.  They have already put a first coat of stain on the timber.  It is looking great!

Week 29 - Kitchen, Bathrooms, Doors and Stairs

What a week of exciting highs and lows.  Whilst it was so exciting to get stairs installed in the house, our old supervisor ordered the wrong stairs.... We've e-mailed our SS, but he is away on holidays this week, I'm sure he'll call first thing on Monday!  What a mistake!

The fixing carpenters were also onsite this week, installing all the skirting and internal doors. The cabinet makers installed all the bathrooms, laundry and kitchen cabinetry. On top of this the plumbers were in for the waterproofing.  A very busy week, hopefully the progress continues.

(see below for correct stairs diagram..... incorrect handrail and timber posts, no risers, no diminishing wall on the landing, balustrade is not wrought iron, and the bottom stringer should be hidden..)

Week 27 and 28

Over the last couple weeks the building works have progressed.  The plasters have finished their preliminary works, and the 'fixing' carpenters have been on site for a week installing doors, door frames, skirting, and getting the house ready for the stairs.

The stairs, waterproofing and kitchen are set to be started this next week!  Here are some of the progress photos:

'Temporary Stairs' removed ready for the actual stairs!!!!!!
