Day 272: The Final Countdown
- The plumbing side of things is finished and Pete the Plumber has taken off for a well deserved break;
- Electricals are partly done (more on that later);
- The kitchen/living area floor has been sanded and sealed.
The place has been a total hive of activity: on Thursday, I went to pick up the decorative screen made for us by Ro Baby and dropped it of at the house. There were 6 painters, Bob, Pete and Sparkie Dave present plus some bloke who had come in to have a look at the house, as he is currently deciding whether to rennovate or detonate. Dave was very excited about the trapeze lights, pop-up powerpoints and the fancy lightswitch/powerpoint covers in the kitchen. It's great that I'm not the only one who thinks they look fantastic - I don't expect this from tradies given that they see this all the time. Dave was supposed to be finishing things off at the house yesterday but to Stos's surprise, none of the pendant lights had been hung and nothing else that we had expected to be done had been touched. Very strange as Dave is very reliable and meticulous. But a phone call from Bob later in the day explained this - poor Dave was in hospital with some sort of infection. It looks like he will be back at work on Monday but we will have to wait and see. We wish him a speedy recovery.
