Shocking revelation - someone employed by Allworth had the gumption to work on a weekend.What an amazing concept,I hope it doesn't cause the solar system to implode.
So as the pics show we now have downpipes and the water tank has been hooked up ready to give us FREE water.

Getting Laid.

The pics show the tiling that has been started over the last week.We are very happy with the tiles that we chose and the work done by the quality tradesmen employed by Allworth Homes.We have been out searching for carpets and window coverings - an experience as invigorating as a frontal lobotomy.Sounds like a reason to go fishing eh?

Is The Bun Cooked Yet?

The pictures show the newly fitted kitchen,vanities and bath tub - a very active day for Allworth.Electricity has been hooked up to the power pole so no more generator needed.The tilers will be arriving on Tuesday to jazz things up with a bit of colour.


The corner bath and vanities have been delivered and will be installed quicksmart.The internal and external doors are being fitted but we are still waiting on the garage doors.

Tanks Very Much.

As you can see in the pics we have had the 4,500 ltr plastic water tank delivered and placed on the slab.We chose a colour that in theory will blend in with the house.Judging by the amount of rain that falls in this area the tank should always be full.The kitchen cabinets,benchtop and sink have also been delivered and will most likely be installed tomorrow.

Power Arrangers.

We now have a power pole and a meter box installed.The third pic shows the solar collector looking inconspicuous on the roof,in fact I didn't know it was there until I tripped over the installation manual.We have been told we might be able to move in around the 22/4/08 if there are no problems.Fingers crossed.

Turbo Gyprock

Four Asian guys turned up and in no time at all had all the walls and ceiling sheets installed.I don't think they know what a lunch break is.Very impressed with the progress we are witnessing at the moment.

A couple of guys turned up with some Bradford Batts for the external walls and ceiling today.They installed R 3.5 batts in the ceiling and R 1.5 batts in the walls,that should kill the temperature extremes nicely.

Working Undercover.

Action aplenty at the moment with the roof and eaves in the last stages of completion.I think we made a great choice with the roof tile pattern and colour.One pic shows the gyprock and cornice stacked in the garage ready for a Saturday installation.I hope they enjoy weekend work more than I do.All of the electrical wiring has been done by Allworth but my cousin Glen will be down today to wire up the home theater and games room.

Now You Can Rufus.

These pics from today show the fire retardent sarking that had to be installed to meet council demands.Installation of roof tiles begins tomorrow if all goes well.
