Walkthrough went quite well, nothing major. Picked up a couple of things that we may not have picked up on, mainly on the exterior, such as messy render on rainwater loop. But generally positive comments overall. Didn't get into the roof cavity but they will do that next week.

Thanks everyone! Would you believe some spiders have already started nesting in the alfresco fan> Cheeky blighters.
HBTW - I'm looking forward to your list!
Here are some more pics taken after the walkthrough, when we discovered we had light!
Sparkly ensuite light - looks prettier in real life. The fitting is basically filled with small crystals that sparkle when the light shines through them.
Waterfall tap for the spa, it works!
Covers taken off the light fittings after they were adjusted, so I tried to take some arty shots:
Ok this one is a bit boring, but look at all those cables! This will be our data hub when we get around to hooking it all up:
Powder room light in working order! Sorry for the blurriness, and again this looks prettier in real life.

Oooh Trixee, so exciting. It's all looking very glamorous and with personality already. Your kitchen lights look spot on. I love the overall effect of your kitchen. That's a serious collection of cables.

Thanks HBTW, Archetto, and Nikki!
I've just spent a good amount of money on curtains, you can read about it here:
They will apparently be installed by Christmas, so that will be nice!
We've also bought some temporary blackout blinds from http://www.ezyblind.com.au/, which we'll use for the ensuite until we figure out what to do there.
The corner window in the ensuite is proving problematic. We were thinking of putting an external pivot awning there (http://solashade.luxaflex.com.au/window/awnings/External/sb.cn) but there's nowhere for the arm to attach to on the corner.

You're on a roll trixee, its all go!
I love your kitchen and the black pendants.
Thanks for the heads up btw over my fancy wood shaving pendant light not being dimmable.
I have just spoken to the shop and will get the electrician to change the dimmer switch to a normal one as I want to keep the light

I am not sure whether Perth has its own way of doing things in regards to this. Most of Perth has class A (sandy soil), except for some areas near rivers or hills.
