The bamboo was delivered on Friday afternoon and the installation started on Monday after a few delays as the underlay hadn't been delivered. Furthermore, I had a run in with the supplier from Rug World as I clearly told him I needed a brushed stainless steel trim around the island bench. He was adamant that it was not mentioned to him. To be quite honest, the organisational skills of this guy needs urgent attention. We only used him for the supply of the floors as he was the only supplier who had the particular colour we wanted. He was far more expensive than Just Floors, who were also easier to deal with. The saving grace was the fantastic installer we had. He was friendly and his workmanship was impeccable as you can see from the end result. We all totally love the way the floors have turned out. They really finish off our interior and all the colours blend in well. The floors remind me of Lindt Dark chocolate.

Here's a sneak peak of the finished floors, more pictures to follow when we finish each room.
Ben organised with one of the brickies doing the bricklaying across the road to brick in our postbox. He did it within a couple of hours and we just have to acid wash it in a week and get the sandstone cap for the top.
Our bath was delivered yesterday, we just have to get the tap fittings. The stove and dishwasher was installed today. It looks massive. Stay tuned for more updates and pictures.
