Blinds, Driveway!

It has been very busy over the last couple of weeks. We have moved in 90% of our belongings with only a little bit to go. Appliances will be installed next week and then the move is 100% completed.

Blinds were installed last week and the driveway was finished today.

Unfortunately with all the bad weather a few weeks ago the pool install was pushed back which means the fence was also delayed. Hopefully they can make a start on both next week.

I have also purchased material for the alfresco deck which I will be building myself so I will keep you updated to that progress as well.

See photos below of blinds and driveway progress.

Living area. Main doors just block out. Side windows have block out and screen.
Bathrooms have block out only due to the frosted glass.

Day 1. Final excavation and frame and metal work completed.

Day 2. Concrete poor. When the poor is complete and leveled they add a special chemical which reacts with the top layer of the concrete causing it to never dry or set. They can then come back the next day and wash the top layer off exposing the concrete.

 Day 3. The soft top layer is washed off. They then add the expansion cuts into the concrete to reduce the chance of cracking and then acid wash it to give it a final clean. The only thing do to now (it is optional) is to seal the surface. Doing this will protect the aggregate however also give it an almost permanent "wet" look which will be darker and more impressive.
