Melbourne Cup? Pffft. All eyes in our household are on a different race. It’s the race between our builders and the clock. December 4th: Practical Completion Inspection. December 18th: Keys to House By The Water.
Some punters don’t believe it will be done, but after the new pace set in October, I am backing Webb and Brown-Neaves. I’m literally backing them. I’ve booked short term accommodation until December 18th, not a day later. We all know what happens after December 18th. Nada! Building industry shut down.
So what has been done this week?
Well, we have a new sign:
And we have a new bill. The so-called “lock up” stage has been reached with boards in place of many of the windows. Several windows are missing, some were broken during installation.
Our friendly tradie, who cleaned up the site last week, has laid some bricks to hide the pipe that drains rain water into the canal:
One bath has been set in position and the plumber has the bathrooms all ready for tiles:
The tiles and grout have been delivered, so there’s only one thing missing….. the tiler.
Come on, tiler! Please be at our house tomorrow.
