Our last day @ the house
Personally I think we have excelled. For the limited time we had there I think we have walked away leaving something that people would really want to reside in. Family Kennett should walk away from Our last day @ the house with heads held high. Of course the people who would want to reside here, clearly includes us, and make that happen ASAP again please. Yep there are a few things more to be done though, such as;
- Front garden – fake grass landscaping – we have a quote and we shall decide soon – I’ll share a photo of another house completed;
- Bamboo fencing to go up all around the walls that were just skimmed – we have a number of whom to speak to about this from our mate Marjoe;
- New fence and gate – we already have down-payment and we should have it finished in 2 weeks – again an example to follow from another house;
- The owner has committed AGAIN – yep indirectly like the third time to level all around the house – then we can tile. Let’s see how this one pans out;
- We bought bed-sheets – they just need to go on the beds;
- Wall fan to go in the guest bedroom – the bunk-bed one;
- We bought a couple of blinds too to test on the windows, so just need to buy another 12 of them and have them fitted; and finally
- We need to get a shit-load of the picture hooks with sticker backs as the walls in this place are like SOLID concrete. We need to get some art up on the walls!!! We have it we just need to get it up on the walls – only success I had was the mirror tiles up the stairs.
Personally I think that is amazing that we walk away from what was an empty house in need of repair 8 days ago. We had a wedding in between. I went to Hong Kong in between. So to be able to exit on Our last day @ the house with only that list above of things to do on our next trip is exceptional! Much thanks of course to wifey for being my rock through all the stress and being alone when I had to scoot to HK for work, but also to my Philippines Mum & Dad for helping so much, all the kids for being so bloody good, Ruthers and Stacey for baby-sitting the big man, Painey for the snag-list never to be forgotten – and at the end of day despite my bitching, to the crew at Chateau de Paz.
On the latter – still a few bitches to go to our friends at Chateau de Paz – but if they sort out the promised and committed levelling of the garden, and the water leaks we had today during the rain, then rock-‘n’-roll – I’ll be giving a massive BIG UP in social!!! We also found out today from the guys that apparently not only will there be a communal swimming pool, club-house, basket-ball court and picnic area opening before the year-end – but there will be a lagoon being built with a restaurant all around it. Like in Singapore with prawn-fishing, you go to the lake and fish. The fish you catch, you take the restaurant and they cook it how you want it. I am loving this place more and more.
Let’s have a look shall we? A montage from day #1 to Our last day @ the house. Hoping you like it. Again so proud of what we did!!!
Now this is hysterical. They brought this sign over and stuck it on the drive way. I then had to explain that for any English customer perhaps they should change the wording to HANDED OVER UNIT. I then had to explain what being turned over meant. You gotta love the English language. So any newbies looking to buy here, sent me a picture of your sign. This was my lasting memory of Our last day @ the house. See the photo in the rain.
Now let’s get some looks inside. Sorry re the photos. It was dark dark night-time. On Panglao there is no light-pollution, believe me it gets DARK. So only the room lights and camera flash to shed some light on things. But anyways here we go. This is literally locked door time show off following Our last day @ the house. Let us know what you think…? Starting at the back, downstairs.
