Fixing stage completed

Week 10.

Another long week down! Working extra hours to pay for rent and mortgage is not fun. It makes it all worthwhile when you reach another milestone though as this week saw the 'Fixing Stage' complete.

So that is 4 out of 5 progress payments and stages down with 1 final stage to go. It also means that by the end of next month, 90% of our home loan has been drawn down.

Yesterday we met up with our wonderful site supervisor for an early morning walk through of our locked up house.
All of the door frames and internal doors have been fixed, skirting boards on, architraves done, shower waterproofing and screed is set for the ensuite and bathroom, whirly bird installed on the roof, down pipes are up, laundry cupboard and man-hole are in and the front door is on.

In other good news, I have managed to discuss fencing with both my side and rear neighbours and they are both happy to have the fence erected in May when we are due to finish with the quote I have obtained...*insert sigh of relief here*.

Next week the painter is coming in followed by the tiler.

  1. You're right. Seeing everything come together makes it all worth it. It might have been a drawn out process, moreso if you're paying for rent and mortgage, but you could do some creative ways to stretch that dollar to help you get through. I see that you guys were able to move in now, so good luck handling things the rest of the way! Take care!
