Just a Quick Update...

...The house clean has been booked for next week and our "final" inspection is set for Sat 13th April. BUT we're still waiting on the replacement windows. As soon as they turn up (assuming we're happy with the inspection), we get keys!

In the meantime, we've asked Fairmont to quote on the driveway. It will likely cost us more to go through them, but A) we don't have to deal with contractors and B) if it gets us in sooner, we save money on storage fees.

We've also asked friends/family for a contribution towards landscaping (in the form of nursery gift-vouchers) as our engagement present.

I hope we can get the flooring completed in time for the engagement party, which is May 18th. Not that it really matters as we're not having it at home, but it would be nice to show people through.

Have a wonderful weekend!
