As we’ve reached the end of design development, I’m beginning to freak out a little at how much is still left to do. I need to finish off some design concepts for the outstanding areas:
I might try modelling them in sketchup, and maybe revisit some of the ones I’ve already done. That stuff needs to get done before pre-start.
And I also still need to get demolition quotes.
And we have a massive post-handover list too. Some of it needs to get done before we move in, some can be done afterwards. This is what needs to get done before we move in:
- Hot water system
- Skirting boards
- Alfresco paving
- Fence & gates
- TV antenna
- Blinds & Window dressings
- Security screens on windows
- Wardrobe fitouts
And the stuff we can leave until after we move in:
- Additional cabinetry
- Solar panels
- Security system
- Attic Ladder
So the next lot of posts will have to be on designs, although I’m keen to get started on getting actual quotes for things as well.
