Painting Completed

Spoke to the painters last Friday and they told us the painting was complete, so arranged a site visit, which we had yesterday.

The painting is interesting, we were told that you can only look at the walls at a 90 degree angle.

If you look at any other angle the painting does not appear consistent, but at the correct angle the paint looks great.  The doors have such a great shine, as do the door/window trims.

Next is the electrician, plumber and then the tiler.

The painter needs to come back and complete the garage once the plasters have finish.

Still waiting on the carpenters to come back and fix the garage as well as the brick layer who needs to replace some brickwork (bricks to short) around the doors.

Will upload some photo's when I get a chance.

Had a site visit this morning, the painters were on site doing preparation work.  All the plastering had been finished (garage and stairs).

At this stage of the building process the house appears to have slowed down, not sure it actually has, but is seems to take forever to get the house finished.

Two weeks (starting now) for the painter, then tilers followed by electrical and plumbing.

We are currently six weeks behind schedule, the house should be completed by the first week of Oct,  currently looking at mid to end of Nov.

Its a slow slow slow process............

Fix stage completed.

Had a meeting with the SS on Thursday, did a walk though of the home.  It is looking great. The fixing stage was almost completed, skirting missing from a couple of the rooms and was finished today.

Had a small water problem in the ensuite, the cleaner (cleaning the portable toilet) turned on the water and one of the taps in the ensuite was missing a plug and water went everywhere. Some of the plaster on the rumpus room now needs to be fixed. Not sure how the water got to the rumpus room. SS is going to wait until the water has dried out and then identify what has been damaged by the water.

Water everywhere in the ensuite

Water leaking into the games room.
