So much is happening now, before we know it we'll be moving in!! I got a call thismorning from the construction office saying we can go and pick up the final invoice and the occupancy certificate to take to the bank so they can organise the final valuation and payment of the final invoice. Once the builders receive the final payment we can collect the keys and move in! How exciting!!

I have attached a few pics below we have taken over the last week or so but haven't updated yet. The cleaners are meant to be going in today, security screens and turf on friday so full steam ahead!

Our new letterbox (yesterday the tiler put some tiles on the top too)

Tank (missing the downpipes which are now done too)

GARAGE DOOR 15.07.2008

The driveway is poured, so is the patio slab, the garage door is on, some of the air-cons are in and the lights & fans are almost complete.
The house is really starting to come together now. Below are some pics of the outside, we're going to take the curtain/blind samples out to check them next to the paint so I will take some more photos of the inside when we are out there.

Outside with garage door, front lights, drive way, air-con box in the way and front door painted...

PROGRESSING 10/07/2008

I got a call today from the construction office from our builders saying they have an estimated practical completion date of 08/08/2008 (Adam got excited cause that's the day the olympics start) but unfortunately untill the final payment is made we wont be handed over the keys to move in.

Today we delivered the air-conditioners to be installed hopefully tomorrow and to our surprise when we got there this is what we saw! The driveway boxed & ready to pour!!

We went inside to see the mirrors have been put in also, see below


Main bathroom

Not only did we see all this but also the cupboard doors have been put on as well.

The painting is almost completed now and the count down is on till we are allowed to move in. We stil haven't been given a final date so everything is still up in the air. Hopefully I'll hear back from the builders next week with a more accurate date of completion so we can get busy & get packing & moving.

Here's a few more recent pics:

Down pipes are up (not yet painted)

Ensuite basin is in
