Did the Metricon QC guys already do a round of checks earlier or is this the first one?

We continued with the same polished tiles we used for the flooring in the bathrooms as well. As we discussed earlier, hopefully they wont be slippery, LOL

Thanks Emmz. Almost done, i believe. From what my untrained eye can see, its just the carpets, interior cleaning, brick cleaning, silicon/caulking, and final touchups.
If its all done within…

Edit : Looks like the image got inverted when posting from the phone. LOL!

Does your backyard have access from anywhere else, ie does it look out onto a street or park?

My biggest worries as well... landscaping, fencing and furniture. Sigh..

Thats great to see such a small list from the PCI. I suppose the fact that you are doing flooring, cabinets etc post handover kinda helped speed up your build.…
