Darnley coming to the Party!!!

I received a call from our Supervisor today advising on an issue we raised with them on final inspection. Basically, our tiling in the Alfresco/Veranda has some 'fall' issues, water pools in places when it rains etc.

At the time of the inspection, we said we'd see how we felt about it over the 3 month maintenance period. Well, it didn't take long before we saw this as a real hassle and something we'd have to deal with for rest of our time in the house - which is long term. So I advised our Supervisor and Darnley's Construction Manager that we'd really like this issue brought forward and options discussed.

Now that they are all back from holidays, the call I received today confirmed that they are going to rip up all the tiles and redo the levelling and retile for us. A whole batch of new tiles were delivered today!

Well done and Thank you Darnley!

Lucas is really happy with Dad..

Well the landscaping has been on the back burner for the last month or so as our landscapers had some time off. So with a less than attractive, comfortable backyard/play area, we had to do something for Lucas.. we ended up buying a nice big SpringFree Trampoline!

Lucas, 3 in May, just loves it! It is so safe (for a trampoline) and because it's the bigger of the SpringFree Tramp's, even us adults can have a great time.

Assembly was a bit of a mission, but we had it up in a couple of hours. Will get some pics up soon.
