Much Ado About Tiles And Basins

Area affected by the lack of tiles.
*Sigh* probably not the best way to start a blog entry, but it sums it all up nicely. Our fashionably late Italian tiles have finally arrived, well, most of them. Apparently, the 300 x 300 mm sized tiles have been discontinued. This means, that we are short a few tiles. Thankfully, there are enough tiles to tile all the wet areas besides the laundry.

I am not too worried about the laundry missing out. We are using 600 x 600 mm tiles in the same colour throughout the main areas of the house. Seeing, as we do not have a laundry door, it makes sense that we should continue these large tiles into the laundry.

Our builder has agreed to delete the laundry tiling and issue a refund. We did give them the option of laying the 600 mm square tiles instead, but thankfully, they opted for our preference of tiling that area after handover. Yay!

Not wanting to feel left out; my granite basins are ready for collection. Correction, two of my basins are ready. The third basin, for some reason needs to be re-ordered and will not arrive for another twelve weeks. At least I have two to collect tomorrow.

Hope you all have a smashing weekend!

Not Much Happening

Image Source:
Our build has gotten to the stage where there is not a lot happening. Speedy Gonzales has left the building and his cousin Slowpoke Rodriguez has moved in.

Hopefully, I will be able to pick up our bathroom basins this weekend. I received an email from the builder today to tell use that tiling is not due to start for another week and a half. I still need to measure and order our custom shower grate from My Shower Grate Shop.

If all goes to plan, our shower grate will look like the promotional image on the right of the screen.

The shower grate is the last item that we need to purchase, every thing else is sitting on the floor in our apartment or at suppliers waiting to be delivered.
