This week the sliding doors went into our master suite. They are so easy to open and close - nothing like a double-sprung door roller :)
We had talked with our builders about recessing the deck sliding doors into the floor structure so that the metal track sat down at around the same level as our finished floor. Long story short - it was not installed that way, so we would have seen a 5cm aluminium lip (just something to trip over). The builder agreed to re-install it on the floor framing directly, which happened this week. I've shown a picture of a floorboard against the recessed track, much better.
The opening for our stairwell was cut into the floor. We have a slightly wider than normal set of stairs, plus a small void. You can see the framing for two half-walls to enclose the void, I think balustrades can be a bit fussy sometimes so we are doing a combination of solid wall and timber balustrade.
The stair manufacturer fortuitously turned up to sketch and measure while we were on-site, so true to form I decided to return the bottom two steps, creating a podium, and in doing so found a way to spend a bit more money...
Our custom made timber windows arrived - to match the rotten ones we lost. Oh, and our TV recess took shape - now we just need to find some room in the budget for a 55 inch TV!
