The latest

The last 2 weeks have brought some progress, but also some funny (read annoying) moments. The floorboards were polished; looked fantastic from a distance but up close there were loads of little bubbles everywhere! the floor guy reckons there are little bugs in our timber that we couldn't have known about until the polish went down! anyway, it means that the floor needs rebuffing and repolishing, but he can't guarantee that it won't be worse 2nd time around. This has put us back a week from the planned move in date but the guard dogs won't mind staying around an extra week.

The granite benchtops are 1/2 done. On the day they went in the company rang to say that they had broken one of our pieces and had to try and make another one to fit. By that afternoon they were installing. They still have to put the breakfast bar in and we have to choose the splashback colour.

The carpets went in. The bedrooms are a bit darker than we remember choosing but they look alright. they need vacuuming in these photos but that's a job for the weekend!

Almost there!
