So we had an appointment this morning and had to discuss a few items that we were not initially impressed by:
All wet area tiling has been proceeding. The floors have been completed, and the walls, shower and baths have been started. We had an issue with the alignment of the tiles, but after discussions with the SS, we are a little more at ease. We wanted grout lines to all match up, but this just was not going to happen.
Living/Kitchen Air Conditioner Duct
There is a duct point installed almost directly over our kitchen bench, right where we want to install 2 pendant lights. Firstly, having a duct point so close to the 2 lights would look awful, and secondly the air from the duct would make the pendants swing.
Apparently due to the layout of the ceiling joists, there was no way to move the duct to the kitchen, so one possible solution is to remove the round ceiling duct altogether and install a rectangular duct on the wall on the bulkhead above the fridge space.
We will be sent a picture of what the new duct will look like and will make a decision then.
These Espresso bricks are a real pain. Our SS is going to get PGH to come onsite and take a look to see what they can do. So many chips and "lime pops" across the board.
Painters have also been through and completed painting the ceiling and have laid down the first cover for the walls. There are a lot of pencil marks on the walls marking where the imperfections are and where repairs are needed. I'm actually happy to see them - at least we know they will be fixing them.
Today, the tiler will be finishing off the bathroom and installing the tiles for the kitchen splashback. Yes we are tiling and not going a glass splashback like everyone else! gasp!
And so as to not just have a wall of text, here's a picture of our bathroom as it was a few days ago. :)
