Settling in ...

On Saturday we started work on the front and side retaining walls. Thanks to my awesome dad for his help!! ... There is still so much more work to go outside ...

Here's some pics of our recent work and some of the inside too!!

Not quite finished, once I decide where the garden will start we can finish the front wall.

This wall extends 20m to the end of the house

We're In ....

After a long two days, we are almost unpacked. Still waiting for our new bed suite to be delivered (it's booked for Wednesday) before we can finish the master.

Internet is painfully slow - using a 3G USB modem atm. Telstra is supposed to be connecting the phone line on Monday - not sure how long we'll have to wait for internet.

Dining room looks so bare, need to go shopping for a new table. I'm thinking 8 seater, square, light wood - nothing that looks too country.

I'm still pinching myself - after over a year we are finally in.

ps - loving gas heating, so toasty and warm!!

I can't believe after more than a year it's finally happening!

Watch tis space - Pics to follow!!

Hopefully only another 2 weeks to go ....

My dad happened to be driving by the house today and our SS was there, so he stopped for a chat - Which worked out well as he didn't answer his phone when Rich tried to call him 3 times today ...

He said that it should only be another 2 weeks until it's all done:

* Waiting on an engineering report about the bricks overhanging the slab at the back of the house

* The Painter is scheduled to come on Tuesday

* The Tiler has been and finished all the touch ups needed

* The Termite reticulation pipes will be re-layed properly next week hopefully

* No date for the driveway as yet - It needs to dry completely after the small amount of rain over the past few days before they can colour seal it

Argh ..... I just want to move already!

4 weeks and counting ...

Still no word on handover - more than 4 weeks after PCI!

To say I'm over it is an understatment. Oh well, hopefully not too much longer to go ...

3 Weeks post PCI and still no Handover ...

Well it will be 3 weeks tomorrow since our PCI and still no word on Handover.

The carpet was installed on Friday, but no signs of the other defect rectifications yet! :(
