So close…

Most of the snagging has been done, we’re just waiting on a new front door (should be here Friday) and a new controller screen for the under floor heating – once there in we should be saying adios to the builders. Jacko’s here this evening to put the final coat of paint on the kitchen walls and to wax and rub down the oak skirtings, fascias and doors but we’re not expecting anyone to be here tomorrow (hurrah!).

Its not all good news though, we’re not happy with the job they’ve made of the wall tiles in the kitchen so they’re being deducted and we’re going to get Andy from Campsie Ceramics back to redo them – he’s married to someone Angela’s mum knows and he made a smashing job of some tiling when we moved in, so we’ve more confidence in him getting it done properly then getting the builders to do it again. Its a shame because everything else has been pretty good, but the tiles are just not up to snuff and they will be coming off the final bill (plus the cost of the extra tiles).

Angela’s bought Megan an eight foot trampoline for the back garden (£80 from Makro including a safety enclosure – bargain) so Darren and Elaine are coming down this evening to give us a hand putting it together – no doubt there’ll be a tail to tell (and some piccies) tomorrow…
