This week we had our electrical and plumbing rough ins. We (Daniel) had some very specific requests for the electrician, so it was important that we go through all of that with him. Luckily the electrician was brilliant in that he completely understood where we were coming from. Anytime an issue came up where he couldn't do exactly what we asked for, he worked with us to come up with a reasonable alternative. I really got the sense that he understood that this is going to be our home, and everything needs to be user friendly and make sense. We were also relieved that the electrician was happy to sort out our double meter box issue without much fuss. We have finally got the message through to the right person that we already have a meter box and therefore only need a switchboard inside the garage. So glad that is sorted out! We also had a separate company come out at the same time to do our Ethernet cabling.

We were also excited to find that the house had been wrapped. It feels like there is a lot of progress going on at the moment.

There was a lot going on while we were there. We had the electrician and his apprentice, the plumbers sorting out drainage around the house and another company doing the data points all at once. I'm sure it's like this most days, but we've never been there to see it.

The SS also ran through the schedule with us. I can't remember everything he said but it sounds like bricks should be started this Monday, plasterers sometime after that. The tiler is booked for the 17th of August. We explained to him that our rental lease ends in the second week of October and he felt that we should be able to move in before then at this stage. Phew.
