Saturday 25 November 2017 – Whinge and you shall receive

It was probably more of a timing thing than a whinging thing, but after moaning that Bentley gave our neighbours their doors before us, some of our doors and skirting is in. The temporary fence for our Bentley neighbours has been removed.  I thought that might be a little premature, but maybe they are pushing…

Friday 24 November 2017 – Waiting for Fixing

This is me waiting for fixing stage to start... The latest we have heard is that it will be complete by 1 December. But I'm a bit miffed that our Bentley neighbours, who have been tracking behind us, already have their front door door on (part of fixing stage). It's not as though there is…

Tuesday 21 November 2017 – Some more clean bricks

That's all that has happened this week. Oh and they attempted to secure the property. A sheet of plasterboard and duct tape. It was like this when I got there. Note: the glass that was on the alfresco is now mixed in with dirt. When I was there last week and heard the dripping on…

Thursday 2 November 2017 – Locked Out

We are locked out.  Dammit!  I've been sick for a few days and haven't been to check things out, but nothing visible has happened since my last post anyhow.  I assume the plaster has been sanded, it felt smooth in the garage, which doesn't yet have a door.   Our weekly update email from our…

Wednesday 25 October 2017 – Totally plastered!

We are totally plastered!  The cornice was done yesterday and the cutouts for the electrical (power points and light switches) have been done.   I was in a rush and didn't look too closely so I'm not sure if they've been back to sand it yet.   AND, in front of our garage... Although it…
