As I mentioned in another post we have to have a rendered strip running around the perimeter of the house under our weatherboards due to the glass termite barrier (not our choice) but we got them to at least lower the height of this. Now that that row of bricks is done hubby checked measurements and noticed they had done a row too high, a call to the ss and he let us know that he had already noticed and had the brickie booked to head on back to fix it up. Happy he is on the ball but also pretty pleased with my hubby that he picks these things up.
Our tiles and weatherboard has been delivered and the weatherboard is due to start this week I think. Just looove weatherboard but I am wondering it it will look odd on our gableless (is that even a word?) house, joys of building a project house and not sticking with standard brick or render means you have no idea how good or stupid it will look.
I have been stressing about my kitchen and have actually not been looking forward to it going in, I know that's weird but not being able to talk to kitchen company and relying on emails and pictures to convey what we want adds to my stress and also no detailed kitchen drawings. So I admit I felt a little relief to hear that our kitchen will be delayed due to a headoffice stuff up. It seems that a variation we made a few weeks ago to the kitchen and bathrooms created a mix up and our kitchen was not ordered. So instead of us getting our kitchen before Christmas shutdown it will now be installed after. I guess at least we won't have the worry of our kitchen sitting there over the Christmas break but this has now delayed other things like tiling, which was also due to be done before Christmas.
Like I said in another post each new stage brings with it issues big or small and I am glad I realise this now and I am learning to not stress and just roll with it.
In other news we swapped our 75mm cornice for the Sydney Cove 90mm and we are so glad we did as it looks gorgeous. My hubby is especially taken with it.
Architraves and doors have started to be done and the Chippie will be busy at our house until Christmas.
So what does everyone think, blessing in disguise kitchen is delayed til after Christmas break or better to have had it in with less delays regardless of Christmas break?
