Forrester in Mernda

Our project in Mernda with Burbank

Electrical, plumbing fit off completed

Over the last week the electrical and plumbing fit off were completed.

We had a chance to get into the house with the site supervisor to review the latest work done. All looks good and on course to be finished within the next fortnight.

The next work to be done is now painting touch up, carpet, alarm and then site clean up and then the driveway.

Here are some photos:

Balcony scaffolding removed

The scaffolding around the balcony has now been removed. The carpenter had come back to finish off his work and it looks like he has finished now.

Also in the week we had the Telstra pit dug from the nature strip to the house. What is left now is for Telstra to connect the telephone line.

Also done is the fence to the right of our house. This is our last shared fence to be completed. The remaining fence is now all ours.

The garage door was also installed.

Here are some pictures:

Alfresco ceiling done

One of the few things remaining to be done on the outside has been done. The alfresco ceiling has now been done and it will still need to be painted and this will be done at a later stage.

Elsewhere tiling looks like its almost finished at least on the ground floor where we can see.

Here are some of the pictures:

Run through for fixout inspection

Early this morning we met the site supervisor for the fixout inspection. The supervisor showed us around the house and gave us an indication on when the next things will be completed.

There was no issues with the inspection which is good.

Painting is almost finished with only the balcony still to be painted.

The next stage is tiling and the tiles are scheduled for delivery today.

Here are some photos taken today:

Painting started

Painting has now started and you can see the paint through the downstair windows. I am not so sure how much of the house has been painted so far as we are locked out at the moment.

We have a meeting with the site supervisor pencilled in for during the week and there will photos coming from that.

Scaffold back for balcony

This week scaffolding was back to complete the work on the balcony. Once the balcony work is done and the scaffold is removed the facade will be more clearer.

Apart from that both doors leading into and out of the garage have been installed and also the work that should have been done inside.

The carpenter rough in should finish this coming week and then there will be the invoice and then the painting will start. Things are getting interesting now.
