We rocked up pretty early on Saturday to help our future neighbours move a few tons of road base around to their backyard. We hadn’t heard much from our site supervisor over the last week, so we didn’t really know what to expect in terms of progress for the week prior.
Holy crap. It looks like our house, and it looked really good.
Finally, the front and rear cladding had been painted. I was now able to truly visualise what our house was going to look like. Not only that, but all our doors, windows, and gables were stained ‘dark oak’. Fortunately we had painters on site (a common theme for Saturday mornings as of late), so we were able to check on the progress of things inside the house. The yellowish colour that adorned the walls last week turned out to be a priming base coat, and now most of our walls were the correct colour – White Duck 1/4 strength. Oh, and they fixed the frosted glass on the front door! Metricon has addressed probably 80% of my concerns in this week alone. Dare I say I’m confident in Metricon’s quality assurance?
We’re so close we can taste it. I thought I’d have a better idea as to when we’d move in the closer we got, but I think it’s just the opposite. I find myself guessing what’s left and when should we start scheduling stuff like the fencing, the driveway, Telstra, etc. Every guess I throw out there is completely off – sometimes too short, sometimes too long.
I’ve never been good at guessing games anyway. But, I do take nice photos, so that’s something… Enjoy.
