Bathrooms + Electrical Underway

Last week saw the bath and toilets all installed. The bath installation meant getting yet another hole cut in our laundry ceiling because the plumbers had never actually plumbed the bath in even though we had told our supervisor numerous times. The supervisor asked them to go check a few weeks back and they said it was fine. It appears we were right!

Electrical kicked off on Thursday afternoon. All the downlights and powerpoints/light switches are in. Unfortunately they couldn’t do anything in the bathrooms yet as the ceilings are going to have another layer of gyprock so the cornices sit lower and cover the tops of the tiles (which aren’t straight). They still have quite a bit of stuff to do outside too. One of my kitchen pendants is also not hanging straight. Hopefully I can get that sorted out.

The gyprocker should be back (for about the sixth visit) sometimes this week. He has a fair bit of stuff on his list to get sorted. Tiler was there yesterday ripping down the kitchen splashback tiles (some of which were laid upside down and therefore didn’t line up!). The gyrocker will also have to redo that whole area before it can be retiled.

One coat of paint has been done but we still need another coat plus the girls feature walls to be done. There is paint on literally every surface. All over the tiles (as you can see in the photo of the bath), on the kitchen cupboards, all over the glass on my glass doors plus on the bricks. I think my five year old could have done a tidier job.

Not sure when the bricks are going to be redone around the front door. The list of stuff to be fixed just keeps growing and growing. Who knows when we will finally get the keys.
