To think back a year ago how excited we were to begin this journey and only imagining what house we would have, what our selections would be and how the finished product will look...to now seeing it. We are the first to admit how lucky we have been to have a completely problem free build - smooth sailing all the way.
As of the end of today there should be only one item to go in the house - the glass splashback in the kitchen. Measurements are being taken for this on Monday and if all goes to plan there will only be a few paint touch ups to do, some shelving to put in and then our humble home will be complete.
We had another early morning walkthrough with Mr SS this morning. I actually was asked to take my shoes off at the door (insert laugh) because the flooring had been laid.
The Coffee Oak laminate floorboards look amazing and could easily be fooled for timber.
I was truly speechless walking through. The ensuite was complete with toilet, mirror, two basins, tiling, shower with frames, glass shower shelf, taps and showerhead all in place.
All lights have been fitted and the covers for the heating ducts in the ceiling are on.
The main bathroom felt very "roomy" with a massive mirror reflecting the light coming in from the frosted window - this bathroom was also completed.
The guys were in preparing for the carpet to be laid and although we didn't see this happen it would have been completed today as well as the stone bench tops being fitted.
The garage door fits in so well with the front and I am really happy with the colour.
The SS said that the site fencing comes down today and if all goes to plan we will be doing our Practical Completion Inspection (PCI) on the 28th April. If we sign off on this, the bank will walk through and final payment is made which will then lead to us being able to collect the keys the following week.
I think it might be time to give 28 days notice to our landlord!
