Well, this weekend Melbourne appears to be enduring an enormous amount of rain. According to the Bureau of Meteorology, around 20mm has fallen today. That's probably more than any given six months last year. All in one day. Which, naturally enough, turned Dirt Patch into more of a Sludge Patch. In fact, this is how much rain there's been today:
The drainage ditch actually has water in it! Oh, and plus, we have a front door:
Worship the door. Is it not nifty?
This is probably the one thing that took us the longest to figure out. In fact, it's not even a normal Metricon door. It's made by the sister company of their usual supplier, which also happens to be under the Jeld-Wen banner, so when we brought it up, Metricon was nice enough to source it for us. It just looks so much better than your average front door. : )
So, what about the rest of the place? Well, we peered through the back door (everything's locked up now) and found this:
Skirting boards and architraves! Cool. : )
The cabinets were originally meant to go in on Monday (the 9th) but since then they must have changed their mind--the MyMetricon website now says that cabinetry is "pending" with no specific end date. And yesterday it said that wall tiling would be completed some time around the 19th (if I remember correctly), but now wall tiling has been taken back to "pending" as well. So we're not sure what's happening.
Something else we're wondering about is this down pipe:
What's the deal with that? Looks like it's going to end up going over the window...
Also, when we looked through the window out the front it looked like the power point that is meant to be inside the cabinet in the ensuite is actually going to be behind a mirror. That's all right, I'm sure it'll work out in the end--after all, if the power point really *has* been put behind a mirror, someone's bound to notice eventually. : )
