Weekly update: The first duplex has been completed. Did pressure check on the water system this week and all working properly. Street end of 2nd duplex now being neutralized and primed. Shelter by gat

Latest update: Light at the end of the tunnel!
All units now done, bar a few touch-ups to the paintwork inside. Carpenters put the final touches to the cabinets in the walk-in wardrobes this week as well. Two of our Bindoy guys spent the whole week laying the gravel footpaths, leveling the plot to prep for landscaping and shifting heaps of gravel manually for the car park. All done with a shovel and a 5 gallon paint drum in scorching heat. I take my hat off to them. I spent the week drilling holes and hanging curtains, pictures and mirrors in the first two units. Same to follow next week for the second two. Noreco now have the signed certificate of occupancy and will finally connect late next week probably. A big thank you to Dennis next door who allowed us to tap into his electric for the whole build basically. Pics taken today. Landscaper will lay grass in the near future as all topsoil (9 truck loads) now in situ. Native hut installed also - took 20 blokes to manhandle it off the truck into position. Wish I'd been there to record that! Going well.

Very nice!

Where is this located? Valencia near Dgte or Valencia near Carcar?

Below is confusing me a little. It's not in the floor plan so I assume it did not fit in the CR?

It's Valencia near Dumaguete! The idea was to place the wash basin outside the CR to give more space inside for the shower and toilet. This was actually an idea I copied from another apartment unit nearby. I kinda liked it as it was a bit of a different take on the usual design!
