Ah ... there he is!

OK, so we found the tiler.

One of the benefits of building a home close to my daughter is that she has been able to keep an eye on the progress while we are not there. Last night she had been out walking with her dad's partner (and I'm assuming the dog as well) and I received a text from her telling me that somebody was at our house, and it was too late for them to be tradies!! Of course I had a mild panic attack picturing all of the damage that these people were doing to our beautiful house.

So I decided to take a well earned break from work and drove down to the house - hoping that somebody would be there to let me in.

Nobody was there. Thinking that not much work would have been done since Wednesday but wanting to scrutinize the damage done by our visitors last night, I picked up the camera and walked the perimeter of the house (don't like the idea of not being able to get into the house!!).

Walking past the ensuite window I saw the beginning of a tile .... big smile as I planted my face onto the window and saw that the shower walls had been done. Nothing on the floor as yet or in the shower recess.

Next thing I noticed was an outdoor powerpoint ..... then as I looked through the kitchen area I noticed:

- downlights in
- ducts for heater
- GPO's

Wow!! So much had been done in one day I was .. once again ... amazed at their progress.

Walking around to the other side of the house and once again, peering through the windows the laundry has been completed (just waiting for grout) and Sarah's bathroom wall tiled and bath .. just waiting on shower recess and floor.

I was a bit bummed that I couldn't get into the house but was more than pleased with the progress that has been made.

Awww! Love the colour of your tiles! They look awesome. Especially that one greyish feature that goes down the wall in what I believe is your ensuite.

You know I realised after our tile selections how many possible combinations/designs you can do to your bathroom and wet areas. I love how yours is soft and subtle. But still creates an impact. Great job!
