Anyways, what have been happening in our neck of the woods?
Electricians are still doing their work (2 weeks!!!). Last time I looked, they have completed 95% of the job. There are still a few bits and pieces missing - a few powerpoints, both internally and externally; a couple of powerpoints and switches that need to be fixed firmly to the wall; and my Number One bugbear - our main ensuite switches that are still located outside the main ensuite. How many times do we have to tell the electricians that it's meant to be inside the ensuite!!! Look at the electrical plans!!! It's all very clear there!!!
But on a more positive note, a lot of other things have progressed, quite well as a matter of factly. See for yourselves ...
Lights on, Lights off ...
|Outdoor Room downlights have been installed (and so did to the rest of the house);|
Wiring in the middle of the ceiling space to allow for a ceiling fan (no light) post-handover.
|Stairwell lights ... Light up your way as you go up and go down the stairs.|
2-way switch at the bottom and the top of the stairs.
Not showing you the other (half) side of the stairs. Yet, another issue with the electricians.
|Standard light fittings (with light batten and cowl shades);|
Walk-in / behind-the-bed Robe;
Will replace after handover with track lights or multi-directional halogen/led spotlights.
|Heating Lamps (IXL-Tastic), fan and downlights in all bathrooms (upstairs only).|
|All sorts of lights around the kitchen area. Still looking for some nice pendant lights to put above the island kitchen bench.|
Bathroom Taps, Shower Heads, Spouts and Mirrors
|Guest Bedroom Ensuite|
|Main ensuite with his-and-hers inset basin and large mirror, and a tad wider-than-normal shower recess with a Dorf Jovian rail shower with overhead.|
Did I say we got a driveway? Yes, we have ...
|Driveway's done, too. Just last week. When we were away. Pleasant surprise.|
|Looks wide enough to accommodate 3 (actually 2.5) cars.|
And wait ... there's more ...
|And ... my horizontal kitchen window sill has finally been bricked-in ... thank goodness for that.|
This is Day 268 of our "knockdown-and-rebuild" project. How much longer? I don't know.
