Basically, John's estimate based on the plan was very close to the actual measurements. About 280sqm of bamboo flooring. He said, he'll send me a proper quote soon.
The tiler had just completed the porch tiles when I arrived and John's business partner was to quick to point out that the entrance tiles were going to be too low. Luckily, the cement wasn't dry yet and our tiler was able to rip off the tiles again. He said Beaumont didn't send him enough tiles and there were some missing from the laundry floor. So, he put some in there to finish it off and he'll just get more tiles for our front porch. We need to tell him to come in once the doors are cut, so he can lay his tiles. Of course, it will now cost me extra but I'm happy with his work.
It's annoying that Clarendon asked us what flooring we'll be putting in (and we told them it will be hardwood or porcelain tiles), yet they failed to accommodate for this when they instructed the tiler. Apparently, they only ask that question so they can adjust the dishwasher position. Never mind that we have the laundry right off the kitchen and there's a difference in height there. In many ways, though, I understand what our site supervisor was saying about the frames and doors all coming pre-cut, pre-measured. That's a project home, after all. Our flooring people will have to do that then. Clarendon also wouldn't budge about tacking on the skirting board. They're either on or off (and not cut to size nor painted). We left them on and will just pay for re-installation of the skirting.
