I was at the house yesterday organising the joinery measure and boy did I pick a good day to visit! The block was a hive of activity and the site manager had his hands full barking orders at the chippies and trouble shooting a leak from the lower roof. A puddle of water inside the supposedly water-tight Study aint a good sign but it’s better the issue cropped up now than later when we’ve moved in. The roofers were quickly summoned to fix what needed fixing and I’ll be sure to get our independent inspector give that section a thorough check when he comes in for the final building inspection before handover.
JM once again proved his weight in gold. He clarified a few niggles. First off, he told me that we’re now getting a shower door in the guest bathroom at no extra charge. He also reassured me that he’s aware of our ‘no scotia beading’ variation for our timber floors and confirmed there will be no beading or trim around the kitchen island. It sounds like they will be caulking to seal the gap between the floor and waterfall end. I hope the sealant is properly applied so the edge is invisible. Watch this space😄
As I was discussing wardrobe plans with our joiner, JM actually made a point to ask the joiner how he wanted the robe spaces finished. They lost me with their builder lingo but suffice to say I was appreciative of his proactiveness. He didn’t have to talk to the joiner and I certainly didn’t ask him to but he went out if his way to help anyway. Just goes to show what a good site manager he is. Lucky us!
Finally he ran me through the schedule. So, looks like he’s aiming to present the house mid July. Ohemgee!!! We are possibly only 4 weekends away from getting our hands on the much coveted set of keys. Someone pinch me. I can’t believe the end is sooooo close. I’m crossing all fingers and toes that every single job runs on schedule. Woohoo!!!
