Not much to say. Just new pics of the latest additions to the house. A very slow process but getting there !

Monday is going to be a BUSY day - the installation of some major stuff!! Can't wait!!
The lap'n'cap side fence - privacy at last!
The rest of our flyscreens - several had to be re-made due to wrong sizes
A few adjustments to our roller blinds
AND the fit out of our 4 wardrobes !!

As I was silly enough to forget to delete the shelf & rail in all our robes, I now have to rip them out!! Unfortunately, the wall is being ripped off in the process, since the installers used silicone? to glue the support rails to the walls! !@#$%^^
Pics of the damage & this is on EVERY wall :






S is sooo happy with me over this affair - not! He didn't want to spend the money to fit out the robes in the 1st place, let alone make good the walls before the installation. Regardless of what he thinks, it's happening on Monday - can't wait.
We really need to have those spaces utilised efficiently, as we have little storage in the house apart from them.
The massive 5 metre built-in storage unit in our family room won't be happening. The quote was way, way over budget- $6,000 !! Opted for a large pantry cupboard instead, as a minimum, which is an absolute must in our small kitchen. So getting the robes fitted out properly was imperative.

Will have pics of the finished fence & robes after the weekend!

I wish I could add some new pics, but we are still waiting for our lap'n'cap fence. Hopefully, it will be installed next week.
We're also waiting for our flyscreens. Hopefully, next week also. The supplier of these was recommended by danma, a Homeone Forum member. Yay danma! The roller blind supplier was also her recommendation.

In two weeks our wardrobes & WIR will be fitted out. The only difficulty will be removing the shelves & hanging rails which I should have had deleted from our build! * rolls eyes*. I just didn't think of them at all.

Have realised, that the wrong ducted vacuum motor has been installed. The only way I know this is that our contract stated that the motor would have an outlet on it for vacuuming our cars. Well this motor certainly has no outlet. Will have to get on to EB to either swap them or give us some kind of refund.

Another issue was that our front balcony did not get the stainless steel rails, as the brickie went up too high. This was pointed out to us & we agreed not to have them. However, we forgot to record this & consequently S only rememberd 2 weeks ago. To EB's credit, they instantly organised a refund of $2,500!!!! Now that's a lot of money to forget!!!

Will post some pics when the fence finally goes up. Yay, privacy at last.
