One week until handover

28 07 2015

There have been a flurry of trades at the house over the past week; completing the tiling, plumbing fixtures, installing the hot water service, putting down the floors and skirtings… The week leading up to handover has been quiet though – no one around apart from professional cleaners booked in for the day before handover. Our co-project manager did spend an hour walking through the site making a list of all the little things they needed to address like door stops, siliconing gaps between floorings.

Fixing it up

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.
