Driveway, carpet and site fence

Eden Brae haven't really stopped at all since the start of this build. After my last post, they finished off the tiling and hung the door the next day! I also noticed what appeared to have been cleaners going through the house as everything is now nice and clean and shiny.

So they started scraping the drive way 2 weeks ago and poured the slab about a week ago. The middle of last week saw the rainwater tank get plumbed up and by Friday just gone they had finished about 90% of the paving (As seen in the pictures). Upon entering the house, I also noticed that they had completed fitting out all the carpet as well!

This Saturday they removed the site fence which means we are nearing completion! So at this point in time I am waiting for a phone call about a practical completion inspection which cannot be far away. Hoping at this stage now that it will be a matter of weeks before we get the keys!

  1. Looking GREAT, Ian! How exciting to be almost there.
    In the home theatre, is that a join in the carpet?

  2. Thanks Kerith!

    No they have them in every room, they are just offcuts sitting on top for the tradies to walk on so they don't dirty the carpet I suspect.

  3. Phew! I was thinking that it was a little too obvious to be a join. I would have been ranting & raving about that LOL

  4. A beauty indeed and I think you should contact salt lake city precast concrete for concrete wall inquiries.

  5. Security must also be added to this renovation. I love this post, its a guide and instruction. thanks.
