We had PCI last Thursday and I am delighted to say that we are very happy with the house and the Fact that we couldn’t even find 20 places to put red dots is a real testament to the great work done building our house. A special thanks to the General running the show, our SS "V" who has being a pleasure to deal with during the whole process. V can be hard to get a hold of sometimes but he did give regular updates and was always true to his word.

Of the red dots most were paint touch-ups which is a be expected and the painter was on site to fix them up straight away. Our painter "C" work is impeccable and you can tell he takes much pride in his work.

Other minor issues identified were:
* Broken storm water pipe out the front of the block
* A loose floorboard
* Section of kitchen where the dishwasher goes was not plumb
* Laundry Door to be replaced

AND THATS IT !!!!! :)

All I can say is that my build has being probably one of the smoothest you could ask for in this game and anyone who says negative comments about PD will only have it fall on deaf ears with me.

All set for handover this Thursday just waiting on the Bank and then the move on Sat.

Cheers for now


PS As we move who knows how long before we get internet back so if I don’t post for a while this will be the reason.

Flooring Photo Fest!

PCI is this week and the final touches on the house are being applied.
The remaining tap fittings have being installed.

WIR...... Surly the other half could let me have more than the 1/2 a meter of closet space I'm allowed in the rental with all this space.............. No I've just being informed that she needs all of it and I can have 1/4 of a meter.


The Lounge

Bedroom 2.

Bedroom 3 soon to be home of the Master of the house.

Bedroom 4 which will be my little den when working from home.

Its a Hallway!

OK now we get to the bit that really excited me when I saw the house this week and that was the fact that our Trueloc Flooring had being laid( well 99.9% anyway). We choose spotted gum and I think its looks $h!t Hot!!!

Entry with the 0.1% that needs to be finished.

Looking at the living room.


From Living Room to the kitchen.

Rumpus to front door.

And a better picture of the splash back with the correct pot draws.
PCI is this Thursday..................... I don't think there will be much to pick on.... just a few paint touch ups and maybe just some other minor things.... all I can say is that the work being done on our house has being of a very high quality.
I am glad I have seen the house with the floor now before PCI so I wont just walk around with my gob open drooling like I did when I took these photos so I can concentrate and find all those little faults.
Wish me Luck

Carpet, Flyscreens, Spashback and a nice surprise!

Oh it was a muddy visit this weekend and I guess it was a good thing that I was locked out so I couldn't drag any mud through the house.... like I would!

I am trying to organise the fencing with the neighbours, I was successful in contacting the guys to the right of us who have just reached lockup (building with the big M). But on the left hand side is an empty block which belongs to Burbank. They currently have not sold this block and the person I spoke to was not sure of the procedure for Burbank themselves to pay for their half and redirected my phone call to another department but alas all I got was a voice message. I did leave a message but have not received a return call 1 week later..... fun times ahead chasing that one me thinks!

Anyway back to the house and the photos:

Flyscreens and Flyscreen door have been fitted.

Spashback in Dulux Sphathire Stone in and also for the keen eye the correct pot doors have been installed.

Carpet........ its pretty dark! But is a good match with the tiles.

And it was a nice surprise that our couch that we ordered 12 weeks ago is ready to be delivered and will be dropped off on the 28th of this month.

It is the Igloo from Nick Scali but ours will be in black.

PCI next week......cant wait!

Cheers for now
