Ok, so the bathroom has been put on hold until our plumber turns up, which apparently is tomorrow. It’s been disappointing that we have been pushed back and given excuses, especially when we are really good customers and actually pay our plumbers invoices immediately. Understandably the plumber is busy and has trouble juggling bookings, but it has just been a case of over promising and under delivering at this point.
While waiting for the plumber, we were able to get our lighting and power points installed for the wet areas and a temporary light for the main bedroom. So although these rooms aren’t complete, we at least have enough lighting to finish them off in the evenings. Anthony’s Dad (our Electrician) has done an awesome job with installing electrical and continues to help us on some odd jobs. The wall cabinets in the laundry have also been partially installed and the benchtop fixed to the wall.
Pieces of our new shed were also delivered throughout the week. We received the frame, sheets, PA door and windows and all the bits and bobs that come with it to put it together.
On Wednesday morning, Anthony, his Dad and builder friend worked away on the shed and put the frames up together. It’s a lot taller than our old shed and is a little further away from the house, so the access feels a lot wider now. We purchased the kit shed from Fair Dinkum sheds and so far the frames have been fairly easy to put up, but now the guys have run into an issue with the roller door. We requested a taller roller door, however it seems that the consultant ordered us a roller door that is not only taller, but wider. So the door does not match the size of the shed. Again another pain point, but I’m sure something will be worked out.
On side notes, our fire curtain has been built and will be installed this week and next week we should expect to have our frameless shower screens installed also.
There is still so much to do, but each day we get closer to that next hurdle – internal demolition.
