All has been quiet on our Eden Brae house - no sign of action mostly due to the rain, I think. I did receive phone call from the electrical company to inform us of an issue with our job. Our plans have recorded that we requested 2 external downlights in the eaves outside the study window. Um, we don't have any eaves there. Doh! We need to come up with some alternate or get credit for the downlights. I am waiting to hear back from them as to whether we can put on updown light there and one on the outer garage wall to balance it out.
I did say at the end of last week that there were some issues that I needed to get sorted with Troy from my time on site.
1) Our contract states that the shower niches are 270mm in height. I confirmed with Troy earlier in the year that the measurement was indeed the finished height. When I measured them on site, the timber framing is 270mm so by the time they put gyprock & tiling etc up, it will be significantly less. Troy said that he hadn't overlooked this and that it would be rectified.
2) One of our PCVs was to add extra noggins to every wall of the house(easier that specifying exactly which walls) We have some sports memorabilia to hang and want some large mirrors etc. There appeared to be no extra noggins at all. Troy will fix this.
3) I wasn't sure which way the front door would open and indeed which one would open. I wanted to check this before it was manufactured offsite. Tory was looking into this for me.
I am hoping that next week sees a flurry of activity at the EBH house and maybe even our current home sold ;-)

As we are getting our home ready for sale, I thought it would be a good time to take photos to store for our memories. It has been a great home to raise our 3 gorgeous children in - so quiet & bushy, across the road from the fantastic local school, no through traffic, great neighbours. Enjoy the photo tour!

I had a call from Troy yesterday letting me know that he would be on site most of the day and that the electricians would be there today and tomorrow. I told him that I would arrange to get AJ from Re-do My Space out there and I would inform him of the time. 8am was the elected time. We waited until 8:30am and I contacted Troy - no electricians, no Troy but I got permission to enter the site.
There are some issues I need to get resolved with Troy - stay tuned!
