One year later and we're nearly done. Before I came to work today at midday, the kitchen glass splashback and the one in the butler's pantry, the display niche glass lining and the display cabinet under the bench in the family room all went in. So now a lot more light and reflection finishes the big room nicely. The only things to do in that room now are the pocket doors on the desk and refitting the range hood/ exhaust .
Also the black infills in the fences and portico with an entry gate were being fitted. The surveyers were also on site to see we hadn't gone over the boundaries or above the height restrictions. John, the architect, and I noted all the defects and touchups.
If the front door would open now the new carpet is in, we'd be thrilled.
