Went out to house site yesterday to confirm what has been done. The waterproofing in the wet areas has been completed and it appears the other trades person my wife saw on Friday must of been the cornices fellow. The cornices have been completed and they look really good. The house is coming along nicely.
We also managed to go shopping with a friend who knows more about audio then we do and managed to find a place who would demo the amp we wanted with the speakers we wanted. The unit sounded great, and the price was good too. So we put a deposit down and managed to get free delivery too. Just need to give the fellow 2 weeks notice to get it in stock and then of course go pay him the outstanding amount.
Below is a few pictures showing the cornices in various rooms, of course each one can be clicked for a better look.
