Practically done!!

We had PCI yesterday with our SS and Kevin from "New home inspections"! Had a bit of bumpy start ie our SS forgetting that we had presentation at all lol, he was in the office when i rang and he was quick to jump in the car and arrive at the house, he also had one of his carpenters come around and open the house so we could start looking around, Kevin was busy checking out the outside of the house. All in all we are very happy with the finish of the house there are only a few things on the list of things to fix eg, the laundry bench top is currently been pulled out and replace as it had the wrong edging, the mirror in our ensuite is also wrong as its meant to finish square with the vanity but for some reason they have cut it to sit 50ml before the end of the vanity on both sides so that is also going to have to be pulled out and replaced, other then those 2 things, the rest it just cosmetics, paint touch ups, stain removed from windows where the painter couldn't keep inside of the lines ect, ohh and for some reason our driveway still has not been poured but the SS assures me it will be done any day now. We are just awaiting the report from Kevin now to see if he has more things to add to the list but he has told us the list it pretty good!

I received our Cert of occupancy and finally invoice from Metricon late Monday afternoon, so all paperwork was sent  off to the bank yesterday and they have advised me that i should defiantly have the cheque before next Friday.... Wooooooooooo, i don't want to get my hopes up to much but i am a little excited now!! So if everything goes to plan (crossing my fingers) we will have our keys to our New Home next Friday!!!!!!!

Fantastic and well done...almost your HOME.

I drove past this afternoon 'wondering'.
Noticed the driveway has screenings down so you must be close.

So exciting.

Wonderful news Tash! Insee you are about to get some neighbors as well soon!

Let's hope Kevin doesn't find anything too major, although I think he would have told you if there was.

Roll on next week!

I drive past every day and think how great it is looking. I really love that you chose a different colour brick to complement your main brick, makes the house really stand out.

You must be so excited, Friday won't come quick enough for you. I hope you were happy with Dean. Cant wait to have you as a neighbour.

Can you believe that you're nearly finished????? Seems like only a handful of weeks since you started - it's really flown by.
So so close now.
It's THE most amazing feeling waking up in your home. The place you've invested so much time and effort into.
So excited for you both. xxx
