Day 210 Garage door

Drove past yesterday evening and noticed that they have installed the new Colorbond Timberlook Garage door (Classic Cedar - light colour). The initial impression was disappointment when I noticed the colour difference between the Gable slats and garage door. We had based our colour selection on the Metricon Plantation design we had seen at Metricon display homes (e.g Mornington Peninsula), on the Metricon website and other Metricon homes on the internet. In addition to the timber-look Colorbond garage door, the front door will be stained Cabot Jarrah. But as you can see the gable slats don't look quite right. In addition to the colour (or lack of it) the slats are quite wide apart.

This is how the gable should like at Metricon Mornington

Other issues:

Front door - we found out a few weeks ago that the "solid" timber door we thought we had upgraded to was not solid enough for the door handle we chose. We had chosen this door handle from a selection presented to us at Studio M (after having chosen the so-called "solid" timber door) - it was not a special order! The upshot was we had to pay for another upgrade to a "solid", solid door (which is basically a double upgrade) otherwise our only other option was the standard door knob handle!!

Other updates:

Painting (internal) is all done and looks good. The electricians, telecommunications and cabinet guys have been in the property the last couple of days to do some of the electrical fit offs and wardrobes.
