Fixing it up

4 07 2015

We finished putting three coats of Ironstone coloured paint on the pergola beams. Internal doors are in, along with door hardware. The vanity is wall hung and most of the skirtings are in.

Painting

22 06 2015

On Friday the concrete floor got cut and polished. But we couldn’t walk on it yet as it needs 48 hours to sit.

We spent Saturday painting the external pergola timbers so the LVLs are no longer yellow but Ironstone.

Final coat render

14 06 2015

Third and final coat render on the inside took place in about 2 days, after about 3 days of plastering to patch in the windows and complete the square shapes around windows and tops of walls.

Bathroom tiling also took place around the renderers.

Next week is going to be a busy week.

Tiling the bathrooms

10 06 2015

I think all the tiling in the bathrooms will be done in 3 days.

The floor in the second bathroom has been done, with the first bathroom floor being done today now that I’ve confirmed the tile pattern/arrangement.

Grout colours have also been selected. Ultra white on the wall, Charred ash on the floor and Slate grey on the subway splashback on the kitchen.

Pre-third coat rendering

8 06 2015

The front door is in, as is the kitchen door with the 180 degree hinges.

The shoebox/entry portico is pretty much done, with the Danpalon window panel to one side of the door.

The bathrooms have been prepped for tiling with a blue waterproof base.

Richard and Scott have spent a few days patching in the windows and completing the window and wall shapes before third coat render goes on.

Colour selections

30 05 2015

This week we had a meeting to confirm the kitchen cupboard layout/measurements/drawer inserts/handle types. The highlight of the week was an appointment with Lauren the Laminex lady who helped us select all the colours for the cupboards etc.

Not many more decisions to go now…
