So close...

Well, we are nearing the end of our build now! In fact in two hours we are having our ' final walk through' - can't wait! It seems strange that something that has affected our lives for so long now will soon be over and we will soon be living on our own again as a family and in our dream house!
We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our new house, everything has come together better than we could ever have expected!

Although we had a very rocky start with our SS due to some earlier building issues (all of which have been rectified and we are very happy with now) we have since been pleasantly surprised with the help and support he has offered us throughout the rest of our build. I must say, anyone who knows us as a couple knows that we are both pretty picky. When things have not been quite right and we have advised our SS of our concerns, he has immediately addressed them and got the tradies back to fix the problem. On Monday, we had the sealant company come to do the silicone sealing around our wet areas. Naturally, we had some concerns about the colour sealant they would use as the grout in our bathrooms is grey and not white. I called our SS to ask if we could set up a meeting, sure enough we were invited to meet with the person applying the sealant. He went through the various colours and applied two he thought would look best so we could pick :)

So, I have some pictures taken of the house at 7am on Monday after our meeting. It was still quite dark so we got to see the house with some of the lights on.

And finally a picture of the house with the fences down!

On another note we have booked in for our flooring and carpet to be done once we get the keys. We finally decided on spotted gum timber flooring. Our good friends got the same floor laid just two weeks ago and it looks awesome. Hope ours looks just as good!
