1 step forward, 1 step back

We went down to see the house on the weekend.

Got a quote for concreting... Going to organise another one or two for later this week.

Also went searching for blinds... We are thinking that we may go for:
* Timber venetians with sheer eyelets over the top for the minor bedrooms
* Curtains for the main bedroom (or venetians with sheers)
* Panel glides for the sliding doors
* Possibly Romans in the living areas with some sort of sheer curtain/blind underneath

In the mean time we have brought a whole heap of redishades!

Not sure how some of this looks in real life... But it looks good in my head! :-/ Any pictures (especially of venetians with sheers) would be greatly appreciated!

Then we finally decided to look at the house. It was muddy outside and we were reluctant to get dirty! We could only see two things which had been completed from the inspection on 10th June. Firstly one of the outdoor powerpoints was moved (it was previously under a tap). Secondly, the splashback was installed... Would have been fantastic if it wasn't installed WRONG! It is about 200mm too short ::angry:: ::angry:: ::angry::

On the upside I do like the colour!

It really seems as though no one is reading the plans!

When we spoke to the Construction Manager today he said that we should have our final inspection in 2 weeks and handover in 3... Don't know whether to get excited or not...


  1. Wonderul looking kitchen. At Torquay, South Devon and South West Builders and Kitchen Fitters we would have been happy to produce such great workmanship.

  2. McCarthy Estates, Torquay Estate Agents market many similar standard properties for sale. Excellent workmanship and design make this property really stand out and it is a pleasure to see that you have presented it to such a magnificent quality.
