EDIT...........Guess what??................The builder has decided to vent the rangehood out of the house after I argued the point that it SAYS TO DO SO IN THE CONTRACT! How good is this? Pretty shitty though that this is their 'standard procedure'.

Today we had vanities and sliding mirror doors fitted to our BIR's. The house is really starting to take shape on the inside with things being fitted out.

I was lucky enough to catch the guys digging the trench for the gas the other day and I asked how long they would have the trench open for. They said 1 hour and so I madly dashed off and bought some conguit and joiners for my telstra cabling. When I got back, they happily installed it for me for a carton of beer! That saved me a few hundred bucks.

I went to National tiles yesterday and had a look at some porcelain tiles for our floor. Straight away I found the tile I want for the main areas of the house. The grout colour will be antique white which is the same colour as the kitchen cupboards so it should match nicely.

A drop down ceiling frame has been built into the porch/verandah ceiling today. I thought it would look a bit too low but it actually doesn't look too bad.

We have quite a few defects, fairly minor though. One problem are cracks appearing next to window architraves. I have been watching closely to certain areas and i'm a bit suspect to whether the builder closed the gap (reveal) enough between the window frame and plaster and just put the architrave over the top perhaps without using packers. It's only the windows with large gaps that we're having a problem with.
