Our front portico has got a lid, or in technical terms ... a cantilevered flat roof under construction.
But wait ... there's more ... let's go around the side of the house, shall we ...

It's lock-up. I got no access into the house anymore :(
and what's this blocking the door???
|Now peering thru the Kitchen's horizontal picture window.|
Wow! That is quite a pleasant surprise. But hang on ... is that a bank of 3 pot drawers? And another one on the left? Uh-oh.
THE QUANDARY ...
Just right after the signing of the final contract, there were a number of variations that were agreed upon between M and us. All documented and signed by all parties concerned. One of these variations is the provision of 3 banks of 2 pot drawers (in lieu of the banks of 3 pot drawers as specified in the construction drawings). We previously saw them from a display home and we loved the look and practicality of it. Besides, my wife wants to fit most of our pots and pans into these deep pot drawers, specifically a 20cm high pressure cooker.
Since the final construction drawings have already been drawn and signed previously, Metricon still accepted the variation, credited us the difference in price, but they did not have to amend the plans. The person who would do the ordering (CM?) will know what to do, and so we thought.
Now, I haven't told my SM about this, yet. We can't. Not yet. We're not meant to be on the site without the SM. Right? I will have to take this up with my SM on our weekly meeting this Friday (have to act surprised and looking like we just noticed it then).
But that's not the quandary. This is ...
Should we reject this, ask them to follow what's on the signed contract variation, and risk delay? Or ...
Should we just accept it, and maybe ask them something in return as compensation? And ... risk being reminded all the time by the better half that this is not what she wanted ... for a long, long time.
Will a 20cm high pressure cooker fit on one of the 3 pot drawers? If it fits, we could potentially compromise.
Does anyone have a 20cm high Fissler pressure cooker and can you fit it on one of your 3 pot drawers?
Shall we continue the tour?

our Ash White crystal gloss overhead cupboards ... standing upside-down on the Family Room floor.
|Peering in thru the tri-slide door glass ...|
more cupboards and drawers
|On the background, leaning by the wall, it looks like a wooden base for the kitchen island Caesarstone bench.|
The previous picture above, you can actually see the cutouts for the double undermount sink.
|Now peering thru the french doors in the Sitting Room.|
More cabinetry components for I'm not sure where.
|We can now see some of the cabinets temporarily stowed in the Laundry (left side), |
to the right, closer to the middle is where the stairs going to be constructed
(oh, look! No more ladder! S&A must be building the stairs pretty soon. Tomorrow, perhaps.)
|And lastly, peering thru the Guest Room window, more cupboards. |
These look like for the powder room, ensuites and bathroom. These are the non-glossy laminates.
|Not sure what those are against the wall (on the right).|
Have a good week all!
