A Driveway and A Delay

Finally the driveway was poured on Monday and its just what we wanted :) We also received our Inspection report back from Kevin over the weekend, all together the was 15 items, some that we had already sighted on the day with our SS and mostly only cosmetic touch ups, A couple of them thought will need a little bit of work, they have to pull out a couple of bricks and replace them and also fix the fascia and gutter on the front of the drive to make it "Fall" right, which is were the delay comes into it because the driveway has been delayed they now can not go on it, till its completely set, thus not being able to fix the garage till next week, So we have a new handover date of next Thursday so only really delayed by 6 days, a little annoying but better off waiting i think! I will keep you all updated if there are any changes :) And here are some pic's of our driveway its alot lighter then it will be in these pics as there is a light powered over the top!! (also you will see that our next door neighbours slab has been layed in the back of the photos)

I did wonder how new the driveway was when we wandered past on Monday - very new. Pity about the delay, but what can you do. Don't want your brand new driveway messed up! It makes me wonder whether we should look at that rather than the planned exposed aggregate.

Glad to see you are realistic about the week's delay, but it's frustrating nonetheless. How did you go with your fences, would be good to get them done ASAP. I would not feel secure unless I was fenced in!

A slight delay is best to get everything done right! It is however frustrating. :-) we feel your pain.

Looking good Tash...

A week delay is nothing for years of 'peace of mind'; you have done all you can to ensure yourselves a lifetime of happiness in your new home.

Roll on one week!!

Thanks Guys...

Hey Janine, we are hoping to have the fence up as soon as possible but definatly in the 2 weeks that we going to have off after handover, We sent out the letters to all 4 of the neighbours 3 weeks ago and so far we have 2 back so hopefully the other 2 will follow very soon!
