Its Ours!

Everything went really well yesterday - still a couple of little things that need to be patched/cleaned up but nothing major and they even managed to get all our appliances installed yesterday so after unloading two cars of stuff we were able to have a nice long hot shower!!

At this point I have thank our SS who really stepped it up a gear after taking over from our previous SS and has done a marvelous job of getting us to this point and we cannot image how it would have finished without him.

We are doing our big move on Saturday but will probably take a few car loads of little things today and tomorrow after work. Also our tilers started this morning and should only take 2-3 days to finish everything so by the end of the weekend we can start unpacking things into the living areas - we will just dump everything into the garage for the meantime. Also we are having to tape garbage bags over the windows in the bedroom as our blinds are not being installed till next Tuesday...but as we dont really have that many neighbours it really isnt that much of an issue.

Once we have the internet connected at our new home I will post some pics (or maybe I will sneak a few into work with me) but I will probably wait until a room is unpacked before taking lots of shots. We still have heaps to do, flooring, fencing, blinds, landscaping....this list never seems to end

HANDOVER booked!!!

Well we are really close now as today I picked up the cheque from the bank for the final payment and we confirmed with Wisdom that Handover will be at 3:30pm on Wednesday 10th March!!!!

Problem for me is that this is my dear wife's am I ever going to be able to top this as a birthday present?!?!?

Many pictures will follow once we move in.

PCI Done!

Well this morning we met our Supervisor out on site at 7:30am to do our Practical Completion Inspection and we are pleased to say there we did not have too many things that need fixing up - mainly a few paint touchups. They was also a tradie there today going around and making sure all the windows/sliding doors work properly.

The main thing to come out of this is that they should have everything ready for us to have handover sometime next week! All we are waiting on is for our interim occupation certificate to come through so we can send our final invoice off to the bank to release the funds.

So very exciting!!
