We opted back at electrical selections to supply most of our light fixtures ourselves outside of downlights. Wisdom had a very limited choice of light fixture options from Clipsal at the time which was disappointing as they were all very utilitarian and ugly. Even the downlights aren’t great and I wish we had opted to… Read More Lights Purchased!
Our bricks were delivered last week, but the brick crew our SS had booked in we’re still finishing another job so they didn’t get onsite until this week. As expected, progress has slowed down now. About 2/3 of the ground floor walls are bricked along the wall closest to our neighbour, back of the house… Read More Week 7: Bricks
No action on site this week apart from a site cleanup. I think we have the tidiest site in the development right now…let’s see how long that lasts once the tradies are back on site.

Busy week this week, we got our slab laid on Monday, followed by the invoice on Tuesday and our in construction notice on Thursday. There isn’t much to say about a slab…all the pipes look like they’re in the right spot and nothing is missing. That’s about the extent of our slab expertise! My husband… Read More Week 0: In Construction and Slabbed
