Gyprock complete


This week Kurmond have completed all the gyprocking in the house and it is so exciting to see the bulkheads and the rooms with walls. Can't believe they did it all in a week.

The Jazz cornice has arrived and so this should be finished this week too i imagine and then the warterproofing of the bathrooms.

They will then stop and handover the job to us for a week as we're using our own tiler to do the main floors and he needs to come in and screet the floor  - Kurmond have been awesome with that, allowing us to provide things ourselves, so flexible, I know absolutely most builders are not normally that flexible. We pulled out our carpet, main floor tiles, ensuite bath, kitchen appliances and air con, so has really allowed us to afford this home.

Anyway. here are some photo's from today:

  1. Wow this is one massive house 53 squares should be about $550,000 with most builders do Kurmond come in cheaper? It looks amazing

  2. Oh thanks lullabyme. It has turned out big, never planned it that way, problem when you design a house yourself, you put everything in it and specific room sizes as this is where it came to.

    Yes we almost couldn't build this house due to price, another problem, you can design all you like but then you have to find out how much it is. Lucky we found Kurmond and yes their prices are amazing - significantly less than $550k.
