Still a bit of painting to go on our façade. The garage door has gone in and I’m extremely disappointed with the colour. We were only offered the option of Surfmist at our Studio M appointment. This was the whitest we could go.
Unfortunately it looks much too creamy in comparison to the Lexicon Half on the windows and doors. The piers will ultimately be Lexicon Half so the door will look even worse once this is done.
I contacted Metricon and they contacted our garage door supplier, who passed on the details of someone who can spray the door with a 2pac paint in the colour of our choice for approximately $800. I am just waiting on permission from Metricon to get this done before handover.
There are lots of things to get done but hopefully we only about a month away from our final inspection…
14th May 2017 – Clearly thinking we were about a month away from our final inspection was a bit ambitious!
We have a presentation date locked in for Tuesday 30th May. There are still lots of bits and pieces to be done but it is all definitely coming together.
Our floorboards are in and look amazing! We were thankfully able to install these without an expansion trim despite the extra long length from our front door to back door. There was no way I was prepared to have an ugly expansion trim in the middle of my hallway.
Carpet is in and is very soft underfoot so I’m glad I chose the upgraded underlay. Our internal plantation shutters have been installed and look great!
Flyscreens have gone in as well as the safeline fall prevention screens upstairs that I stressed about as I worried they would be an eyesore. They just look like regular flyscreens which is great.
There are various issues outstanding which require fixing –
Our laundry tiles are crooked, skirting needs to be installed, there is still concrete in one of our toilets and our water meter was relocated but still falls in the path of our driveway. I’m not confident I won’t hit it every time I pull into the driveway at night!
Some more photos…
Surprise surprise Metricon were not ready for presentation. It has been rebooked for 3rd June. The race to handover is now on. It has been tentatively booked for next Thursday. Really hoping to get the keys before the long weekend. Still have many outstanding smaller items to rectify.
Our site supervisor has left and we are now onto Site Supervisor number 4. He seems to be trying to wrap things up for us.
Our garage door has been sprayed with a 2 PAC polyurethane coating which looks amazing. It now matches the Dulux Lexicon Half on the rest of our facade.
I am frantically trying to co- ordinate furniture deliveries hoping that Metricon will be ready on the handover date…
