End of Year Update

It has been a while since I posted on the blog; so, here is the update from where I left:

The wet areas were waterproofed, on completion of which tiling progressed. Kitchen splash back tiles and grouting of tiles are to commence once tradespeople return to work after Christmas / New Year break. The wall tiles around mirrored front walled recessed shaving cabinets in ensuite are to be re-done, as the cavity space had to be re-adjusted in order to fit the cabinets.

The installation of Kitchen cabinetry (Formica, Chocolate Pear), bench tops (Caesar stone, Latte), kickboards (Formica, Laminated Kicker in New Stainless Steel) and sink (Clark Cellini ERBU Main Single Under mount) is complete, after initially mucking up the placement of sink.  Imagine having to replace a 3 metre long Caesar stone bench top because of the muck up!  Anyway, it was fixed, and the sink is now in the right spot.

The cupboards (Halifax, Concept Oak), bench tops (Laminex, Stipple Hemp, to match the Latte Caesar Stone), kickers (Formica, Laminated Kicker in New Stainless Steel) and vanities (Caroma Liano inset basin) have been installed also in wet areas; the mirrors and tap wares will be installed after the New year break.

The stair case with stainless steel balustrade was installed; the newel posts, handrail and two bottom Maple treads would be stained in Intergrain Merbau; the remainder of the staircase would be carpeted, with any revealing Risers to be painted.

The rainwater tank (Paperbark coloured) and garage door (Timberlook, woodgrain finish in Caoba) were also installed.

I will separately post on painting and electrical works that have also progressed.
