We made contact with Alkira last week requesting a site visit so that we could be shown around the house!! We had not been invited to do so since the piering was undertaken and were getting a bit upset! Who would have thought that all we had to do was call them and request it??They replied the very next morning at 9:30 saying no problems at all. So we met the site supervisir on Monday morning for a walk through the house. We were so excited to see that the gyprock is all but completed, excepting a few areas that are waiting for other carpentry such as under the stair area.

|The cellar, storage, dungeon, time out room or more than likely the crap cupboard under the stairs!|
There will be a storage cupboard under the stairs to hold vaccum and maybe some wine or something?? We have not really decided yet . It could possibly be the naughty corner? Just kidding. It might be mums hideaway when the girls are looking for her to do something?
Our SS let us roam around looking at whatever we liked. He spent most of the time on the phone arranging painters and contractors at other houses. Good to know that he is a bit determined to get the job done.
D3 came with us and so did her little friend from school. She was eager to show him her bedroom and the view of the park from her window. He asked us if our walk in wardrobe was D3's room?? We thought that was cute and D3 was horrified. We didnt think it was that big!! She loved the stairs and they will definitely be a novelty once we move in.
So the biggest surprise on the day was our kitchen has been installed! It is white it is shiny and it is beautiful! Even without the benchtops and stainless steel appliances it looks TOPS! Mum is very happy and Dad is wrapt too with the colour lustrous elm under the breakfast bar. It makes it look so much classier. Ccannot wait for the bench top and tiling to be done so we can see it all together.
