It's getting closer Reg. Have they given you any dates yet? Our builder still isn't a great communicator. I sent a text message yesterday but didn't receive a reply. It…

It looks great Horse. I love the dark splashback tiles. Our tiler came back and fixed up the edges of or tiles a week after he did the rest.
