Standing on the outstide, looking in...

Yesterday evening Robert went to check out the house, hoping to see that some painting had been done.  According to the site supervisor, the painters were supposed to come last week (while he was on leave) to do the external painting, but they hadn't shown up.  When he returned from leave on Monday and found out he organised for them to come on Tuesday.

Usually I'm wielding a camera, but all Robert had with him was his phone.  He was in a hurry and we're still locked out, so hopefully the photos below show the progress adequately.


As hoped, the painters had been and done most of the external painting.  The front door hasn't been painted yet, but otherwise it appears to all be done (although not without faults).

Paint - Render, Cladding & Eaves

Paint - Alfresco Roof and Beams



The front door handle has been fitted, as well as the metal strip above the bifolds, so they meet the dricks (or at least it looks like they do).  The final door, the rear garage door, has also been painted and hung.

There's not much we know about inside.  We can see that the splashback has been installed, and the lights under the overhead cabinets in the kitchen (which were presumably waiting for the splashback) have been fitted.

Meter Box

The meter box has been changed from the ugly building one.  I wasn't there, so I can't be sure it isn't a trick of the light in the photo, but I think it is the wrong colour.  It should be Colourbon Jasper (same as the down pipes) but it looks to me like Woodland Gray (same as the roof and garage door).

PCI is booked in for Monday afternoon, which just happens to be mine and Robert's birthday. Everything is crossed for a handover late next week!


  1. did they end up fixing your meter box colour?

    1. They never came back to do it, and we never followed it up. But we raised it at our three month inspection and it was repainted yesterday when the rest of the three month maintenance was done. So there was no hassle, but they certainly didn't come back and do it without prompting.

    2. I better get them to amend it at our PCI then! thanks!

  2. Clic flooring As a substitute for nailing every bit of flooring to the subfloor, you basically click them together. The ground stays put in light of the fact that you utilize your baseboards to stay it at every divider.
