We have no inspection done in the past, so we're going to bring our own inspector for the first and last time...The anxious hubby called Henley today becoz we need to have a D-A-T-E!  Regardless how many times he'd been transferred, he was able to book in the New Home Presentation/PCI date on Wednesday!  Woohoo! I know it's a bit odd calling  them, but we're just making sure this house is worth paying for before they hand it to us.

Still in panic mode, our SS has no choice but to "eat" his previous words...house is still not finished; settlement is not gonna happen one day after PCI.

We're hoping to get exactly what we expect, although we already missed the more important things to check at least all visible aspects of the home are met.  So, before we jump for joy I'm crossing my fingers and toes hoping for no major issues at all...goodluck to us!

Closed Doors

We decided to drop by yesterday and found out that all the doors are locked....for the first time!

We still had the chance to check out the latest inside by peeking through the sliding doors of our alfresco.  They are still working on our floorboards.  Dust is all over the floor, some skirting are in progress, and the carpets have not arrived yet!  I saw a lot of red dots around the house, which they are going to fix before our Practical Completion Inspection (PCI).  How are they going to finish these by 16 June???

We were pumped to see our french front door out standing and unstained.  T'was really nice to see it from afar and in between there's water dripping towards the foot path because somebody has just watered our plants!  Whoah! We're almost there....

Panic Attack!

Got a call from Henley today and they finally gave us the move-in date.  Guess it when?

E O F Y !

How about that?? It's already June!!!!!  I think we're the only new owners not excited with the move or should I say we're just terrified of the reality that we're about to face...hehehe Tomorrow we'll ring the real estate agent advising them of our intention to leave their property, start boxing our stuff, contact a removalist, ring electricity/gas/internet/phone providers, and contact God to help us with these things!!!  OMG, this is now getting serious don't know where to start....=(

Also, we met the super young good looking SS today and we were told that our French door was stolen last week!  What the!  Oh well, if it they have not left it lying for two weeks inside, no one had been interested..

I'm still in awe while writing this blog that it won't be long and we'll be living our dream house for the next 30 years of our lives...will miss the St. Peter's church here in Bentleigh and the rest of the community...

No Entry!

Our wooden fences are now around the house so, yeah, no trespassers please! =)  Yay, are we nearing the end over err handover of the keys??? Yehey! I think we need to start packing...and throw our things to the three boxes we just pinched from our friend over the weekend...hehehe

This is the latest photo of our backyard with the fence.  No complain at all, just enough play field for my daughter...:)

I just don't understand why until now our main front door is not installed???? Hmmm...can't find the door we saw last weekend inside the house.  Did they end up sending the wrong one to the supplier???  Tomorrow for the first time we will have the chance to meet the SS, so hopefully he's got satisfying answer for us...

Other stuff that we spotted when we sneaked in while the cats are gone - STACKED STONE!  Woohoo! They look terribly fat and good!  How good things are when you get them for FREE!  Can't ask for more...

Electrical outlets, downlights are now in place.  Oh we've got our powder room already set up as well...hmmm...hopefully it has not been used now the portalet is gone...=)

Look! we've got stainless steel sink drain...=)

Last but not the least, our rangehood is now in with the kitchen sink.  Not the fanciest hood but they are lovely to my eyes!  I feel like a masterchef contestant...hihi

We also organized someone to measure the windows and doors for the blinds tomorrow.  Haven't clearly organized our thoughts which one to choose from the five options my hubby listed.  I'll put these five in my next blog when we finally decided...=)

Til then!
