We have a handover date!

The 26th August 2011 has been nominated as the handover date of our new home. Yeah!

After watching the house stand their for weeks with not a thing being done to it, I cant imagine that it will ever be finished within 2 weeks (till our final walk through with the builder). It is expected that the following will be finished:
  • floor tiles laid
  • toilets installed
  • shower screens installed
  • driveway completed
  • rendering finished and painted
  • skirting to be completed and painted
  • paint touchups
and thats just the things that I have noticed.

Carpet and appliances will be added after our inspection to prevent damage and theft.

We are now busily organising our removal . Lucky we are only moving 8 minutes drive from our rental accommodation that moving will not be as dramatic as it usually is.

Fingers crossed all goes to plan.....

Kitchen benchtops, splashbacks, painting and fitout...

Thursday 21st July 2011

The benchtops went on today and we are very happy with the result. We decided on an all white kitchen with a gunmetal grey glass splashback. We decided to source our own splashback when the kitchen company came back with a figure way to close to $3000. We ended up finding someone on our own for 1/2 the price!
The front doors have been stained and the staircase will soon follow. Very happy with the colour palette we have chosen. The house is now about 4 weeks from handover. Hopefully!
