More Movement

Well we still don't have a phone line, which still means no Internet. How can our exchange be filled up while we had out number on hold :(

Anyway since we had handover we have managed to get floorboards installed, as well as landscaping and driveways done.



Next steps are to furnish the house, plenty of furniture on order :)

When it comes in I'll get some more pics up

It's done

Well handover was on Friday.
There are still a few very minor things to be done, which should be finished this week.
Spent the weekend cleaning the floor ready for the timber floor to be installed, fitting toilet roll holders and towel rails to the bathrooms.
Went by the house tonight and they are well underway.
Will post some pics at the end of the week

Lake Eildon

Well it's a little bit off topic but here is a view from the balcony of our house near Mansfield, looking across Lake Eildon.
For those of you that remeber what it was like empty (or  Full) here is a nice view

And it's still going up. Might make for another prime Christmas water skiing season

It's sooo close

We've been housesitting at another house (again!) and the house has been moving along.
The latest update is that we should be in by the 15th of the month.

Here are some photo's of where we are at.

Near Map Views

Here are some nearmap views from Nov through to April

Really moving along now

Well we've been busy looking for things to put in the house, away for Easter and the like, while we've been doing that the Tradies have been busy. The brickies are way behind but it's full steam ahead on the insides.

Shower bases done as well

Ensuite is in too

Kitchen and lounge taking shape

Main Bathroom

Laundry looking great

Here are the first lot of bricks started over 5 weeks ago !!

Our Internal and external insulation - Gee it's going to be quiet

Plaster up, can't get over the fact that is one days work

This is what a messy building site looks like

Wife is pleased with the opening into the lounge

Brickies are still plodding along

Kitchen is installed too

Roof's On

Well we've been away for a week and have come back to plenty of progress. The roof tiles were put on at the start of this week and the house is really starting to take shape.
Met the new SS onsite yesterday and went through our concerns in detail, really hope he honours his committments as I was feeling pretty aggro over the past few days about stuff ups and omissions.
As a result have asked for a full review of our file, PCV's electrical and Colour selections to be completed.
Brick work is due to commence next week as are electrical rough in's and the Argus things we have ordered.
House should be locked up at the end of next week

Frames Underway

The Framers are hard at work, and if it wasn't for some missing items we would probably have the roof trusses on. :)
Going away for a holiday next week so Big Kev from New Home Inspections can do our first Independent Inspection.

Last Photo shows the view from the Lounge across the kitchen and Dining room out to the Alfresco area.
Starting to look good

What's next

Well it was a suprise to see timber on site, and an even better? surprise was awaiting when I got home. My Base stage payment was in the mailbox. It seems that there is one thing that PD can do well and that is send out the invoice. It was dated 25/2 so it looks like the tradies were still working when the invoice for completion was sent. Oh well that's progress

Framing has arrived

Another milestone has passed, with the slab completed.
Went by after work and found timber for the frame too

Just About to be Slabbed - and now we are

Well I  spoke to the SS today and he has advised that the Slab is going to be boxed today, with the slab to be poured either tomorrow or Friday.

Well the pre pour inspection didn't pass, so Thursday was spent rectifying the faults that were found, which was good for us, the Concreter was helpful and even made the changes that we had requested in October, as he was using the old plans still :(
