Could That be the Sound of Keys Jangling..?

It has been a while between updates as things have been moving at a snail's pace. However there is light at the end of this long tunnel. We have our tentative completion inspection set for tomorrow and hand-over scheduled for Wednesday.

Here are some photos and brief updates:

So, here she is in all her glory. Do you like the new windows?

Balcony privacy screen

Plaster still to be cleaned from the tapware

Our bath

Towel rails in the main bathroom

Heated towel rail in the ensuite (hopefully it will be hard-wired)

Some walls aren't square

We had one of the small stairs in the media room filled...

...and we widened the other.

Our driveway when it was first poured

Don't let this post fool you, we have a massive list of (mostly) small things that need to be fixed for hand-over to happen. But we are quietly confident, so we have scheduled our timber floors to be sanded and polished next Thursday and Friday and the carpet installed the Friday after that. We hope to spend the long weekend moving some items in ourselves ahead of the big move on the 15th. Let the fun and games begin!


  1. Yay it's finally happening!!! It's all turned out beautifully! They will have those last few bits and bobs done in not time. Then it's all yours!!
