Another casual inspection and PCI

Posted by | Posted in Final Stage | Posted on 29-03-2011

Earlier this week, we had organised with Burbank a casual inspection just to see how things were going. When we arrived that Monday morning, we pleasantly discovered a beautiful house with an awesome interior. The site supervisor was on site and walked us through how things were going.

Things that have been completed up until this very moment:

  • Tiling completed (floor and wall)
  • Heater ducts have been installed (including one being moved closer to the kitchen window)
  • Electrical has been completed – all power points, ceiling light holders, light switches and data points
  • FTTH cabinet has been installed (no hardware in it as yet)
  • Alarm system has been wired up with IR sensors and control keypad
  • Vacuum system has its cover flaps installed
  • Carpets have been laid
  • Sliding robe doors have been installed (WIR racks have been installed too)
  • Cabinetry for linen closet and pantry have been completed
  • Kitchen sink and plumbing completed
  • Flyscreens have been installed
  • Render base has been applied (not painted yet)
  • Driveway has commenced, will be completed by tomorrow

We’ve also been given a PCI date of 14th of April. We simply cannot wait until this day arrives, and we’re very excited!

Here are some pictures (the ones taken at the inspection were done at 7am, so the quality is pretty dark, sorry).

Just a quick post to let you all know that we’re in the middle of tiling now. The internal painting has finished (external yet to start) and the job looks great. Maria and I went to the house yesterday to have a look at how things are going. I met the tiler there, he was in the middle of doing the kitchen / meals area but we went around to have a look at how things are going. The shower tiles look great with our feature tile accent! Things are looking really good.

I only got a picture of the laundry tiles to show what they look like, as I’ve mentioned earlier our Ascent 2600 will have tiles from the front door down the hallway, laundry, kitchen, meals, rear passage (no jokes please!), bathroom and toilet. The wet areas will have tiled skirtings. All floor tiles are the same type – 450mm Augusta Beige with Buff grout.
