Main floor tiling has begun.. & few more photos..

Hello everyone,

Just an update at our place, main floor tiles has begun and it looks good.

Only we still haven't got a date for PCI nor handover....:(
But I reckon will  be early October.

We found that there are a few things quite dissapointing us, like we can't get our up down lights for front portico. Apparently the brickies has done something inside the portico and the electrician aren't able to install it. Very annoying because they didn't call to let us know about it but they changed it to LED downlight instead. This is not the look that we wanted, since we like their Oran park display home with the same facade that have 2x up down lights, why they can't do the same for us ??

Secondly is our main ensuite bathroom. The electrician (or maybe tilers) has placed the power switch too close to the future mirror if we get 2 skinny mirrors like The Ponds display, the mirror will be so small to avoid the power switch, but if they give us 1 big piece mirror as the other display home, then I reckon the power switch will be inside /blending in the mirror.
We want a 1 big piece mirror instead of 2x mirror, so will request it tomorrow, hopefully it's not too late....if it's not possible, then that's another dissapointment again from Wisdom after they gave us the wrong basin...

Anyway, here are few photos :

  1. Hi Wilcres,

    Your build is looking great, I am enjoying following your blog. I have a quick question which you may be able to help me on.
    What is the colour of your floor? I have just had our floor put down and it doesn't look like the colour I chose (Ivory polished porcelain).
    This is my blog with pictures:
    Is my floor colour the same as yours?

    1. Hi arg277,
      Thanks for your nice comment! :)
      Our floor is Crema polished. It turns out a bit darker than we saw at DiLorenzo though, but we're happy.
      I know Ivory polished, they are beautiful too, my friend had it for their new home last year and it's so beautiful when you have downlights on.
      Ok, I'll check your blog.

  2. I really like your blog sharing the the nice pictures of tile work. I like the color of your floor tile. Home improvement projects from simple home repairs to large scale remodeling and major restructuring.
