* Colours (I might add here again that on the day, most of your time will be consumed by Colours (internal/external) and Kitchen. Try and get these done before going to AC. AC doesn’t take long as compared to others and you may come back another day to see him.)

* Tiles (You will get email from Tile Direct with many available times. Recommended to have Tile selection after Kitchen and Colours. Saturdays are booked out months ahead.)

*Concreter If you have to apply for council crossover, do it early. There is a 48 hour waiting period before the inspector will come and inspect before concrete is poured.
