No , sorry if I confused the issue. He was banned for a few days so the place could be cleaned of his mess and dust.
No food and drink prepared and put in the house before hand.
Every thing else was good to go.
Furniture builder man is back now and slowly working to completion.
Will have photos of that later. :D

I'll certainly be interested in the furniture builders work. I've got some bathrooms & closets to fit out in the future
Cheers

Send me a PM when you are closer to the mark and I will give details so you can get his contact or you can just go have a look at what he has built. Better to maybe judge for your self. :D
He is still at the house and waiting on a formica sheet and specific colour to arrive in country to finish one of the bedrooms.

Thanks Barney, thats a brilliant offer & greatly appreciated, cheers.
I'm probably at least 3 months away from fitting out the rooms, but I'll hold you to the PM if thats okay

My sparky finally came back to town and finished a couple of jobs.
Purchased and installed the exterior lights under the eaves with an additional night sensor.
Wired and installed the internal power outlets and internet cables in the roof space for our 2 internet units. One in the kitchen and the other in the office utility room.
And few other odds and bodds to complete the main boards. 5000 to finish his work and purchase new items, lights and internet unit.

The 3BB Fibre Optic contract guys were booked and installed a new cable to our new house. It was originally installed in the old house. Moved up to the next pole 30mtrs away and in through the conduit already in place from the pole to the house for my sparky to take over.
3BB work was free.

Hi Barney
It was great to catch up on a rare occasion that we were both in town at the same time. Thanks for showing us around; I can see why you are so proud of it, particularly the overseeing by your missus. And my wife and her GF really enjoyed what you and I would call 'the housewarming'. A shame that I was working back in Bangkok, otherwise I could have shared your hangover.

Break I the cricket so posting some boring stuff.
Furniture builder is nearly finished, completed the main bedroom, built in robe, bed side tables, TV wall area, ensuite in bathroom, plus daughters bedroom, TV wall area, double bed, robes with study desk, ensuite bathroom and yet to completed the 3rd bedroom. Wont be long. He has been able to do all work onsite as we have the large covered area out the back. All cutting and gluing etc. Just has to fit out some electrical lights and outlets.
He fitted all bathroom sinks, taps, plumbing etc.

Provided a design and procured a wicker cane bed/lounge from a place on the ring road which was immediately successful with the girls, and put the plastic grass at the end of the pool.

Just an update on the 3rd bedroom's built in furniture, wardrobe, bedside tables, makeup desk, Wall TV and storage unit. Builder is just about finished, with the electrics to be reinstated.
He'll have to finish soon as we have the retainer money sitting waiting till after final inspection. :lol:

Next challenge on the premises for my girl is the front concrete fence. Plus some side fencing. Completing the perimeter fence will allow her to let the big dogs free to roam with out the worry of attack.
She will go for 3 quotes, maybe or maybe not all from the same bloke, Fence, Steel inserts and the auto electric gate.

Advice noted, but,
It's called home maintenance. You air your mattress regularly by removing bedding, vacuuming, turning etc.
Then you take you mattress outside to air for a few hours.
This should apply no matter what base you have.
Quality of the mattress does come into play of course.
The flat base we have is not a concern for me. Having a sprung type base does not allow full airing.

I think he means the mattress should sit on slats, not a sheet, very easy to correct, I agree also, mattress cannot breathe.
