We met Mario our new site manager (yes Wayne is out unfortunately, I liked him :-< ) but Mario is lovely and took us around and wrote everything down that needs fixing or changing. Our only concern is the kitchen benchtop - it looks horrible, it's scratched everywhere where the contractors put their paint tins down and god only knows what else and there was no protective film. Anyhoo, we will deal with that one this week.
The certifier went over it all on Friday so we are waiting (very nervously) for the final report and hopefully if everything is ok, the Occupancy Certificate. Once that is received the bank valuer will go out and make sure the property is worth what we are paying for and they will pay the final payment and we will have a brand spanking whopping new mortgage...oh i mean house, new house.....lol.
So the landscaping goes in Monday, Tuesday, the concreter goes in to lay his foundations and all the nitty gritty stuff gets finished. That's the plan anyway so I have positive thoughts going out and optimism that it will all be ok and we will be in by Friday this week. We better be, i just finished packing!
Screen door is on, over the wrong coloured door - which is supposed to be fixed this week.
Water tank is sitting in the garage and not being installed until we move in - apparently they get stolen quite frequently.!!
Kitchen still waiting for the correctly cut splashback - we only had it a few weeks and it had tocome off as they forgot to cut a powerpoint hole - the electrician didn't mark the spot so the kitchen mob didn't cut the hole out.
Haylee's carpet still waiting to go in as her floor needed repairing first.
So that's the update, lots to do but i have faith they will get it done. I have every finger and toe crossed. Still not booking in the deliveries until at least Wednesday though, just to be on the safe side.
And on a crafty note....I went to the Penrith Papercrafts Festival today to get my Mother In Law a Cuttlebug for her birthday/xmas present and picked up a few things for myself, nothing fancy....pffft, like I would go there and not spend money on myself! I picked up 11 copics, heaps of brads, a copic wallet, books, a magazine, stamps, a christmas pack, a spellbinders set, some pins etc etc etc, can't even play with any of it though as I have work x2 all week and no time to myself! That will have to wait. 2weeks off from my night job from Friday so wooooohooooo, bring it on!
