Kitchen Creations

The kitchen is taking shape so is the butler's pantry, laundry, powder room and bathrooms. The cupboards are in, doors are on and the laminate bench top in the laundry has been fitted. Wow this build is on fire. I still haven't been able to see them in real life but from the photos taken earlier today I am impressed. Obviously the Caeserstone bench tops will come later but the cabinet maker says he will be finished in two more days.
It's show day here in Brisbane tomorrow so I will be having time off and will able to have a leisurely stroll around on site and take in all that has happened. Actually we are going away for a few days for a mini holiday and a couple of work seminars so won't be back until Monday. Oh no I'm going to miss things happening!

As a point of interest, the drawings for the kitchen had to be amended to allow space for the 2 big ovens we've had so we have lost 2 pot drawers, no problem we had quite a lot so they won't be missed. However, we have asked if we get a refund on those as we have paid for them and had them priced in 2 pac.
It's with the finance department so should hear back in a few days.

The brick work is almost completed and then it'll be time for cladding. Not sure if they paint it before or after installation. Once that is finished the scaffolding comes down the pool company can come in and make a start on the excavation and pool works. Must order some temporary fencing to go around that. Its so exciting - can't wait to be in a swimming in my new pool in my new garden at my new home.

  2. I know I can hardly handle the pace, thought I was suffering from builditis last week but then realised it was bloggers cramp from having to do so many posts. Even they are going fast the quality of the work is great.

  3. Thanks for the advice - I can comment again! DH said he has sorted it for me previously - I'd forgotten. Your build is so fast it must be trying to set a record!
