Walk through

We had our walk through this morning, were very happy to find majority of the stuff we had noticed had been fixed. There were still a few spots that still needed painting, a bit of patching etc.. not much though.

And the best news....

Our applicances won't be ready till Wednesday for installation but we can still have handover and get them put in the next day!!!

Waiting game..

Got a call from SS today to discuss where we want our privacy locks.. when we checked that we will still ok for walk through tomorrow he stated we couldn't do it this week, would have to be next. Painters are meant to be there today touching up areas and Friday the cleaners are coming back through, & we can do walk through after that.. keys a week or so after that. We also mentioned a few things we noticed that needed fixing, in hope that they will be resolved before the walk through to prevent it taking even longer.

Were starting to get a bit frustrated at this stage as we keep being told a few weeks, they pass and it's another few weeks but not much you can do!

Well we turned up this morning, no sign of SS. Rang him and he forgot, so came and opened up so we could let guys install blinds. He stated the painters are coming back tuesday to touch up areas (so we went around with post-its so all spots stood out). Will possibly have walk through Tuesday or Wednesday, maybe hand over Friday.. depending if we get final account and bank comes through. The guys were meant to go in sometime today to finish off aircon. Took a stack of pictures.

Drive way and tiling done. Nearly there.....

Well the cleaners were going through today and the carpet is being laid tomorrow. So we are pretty much done. Have a walk through on friday and will hopefully learn of a handover date from there. Supervisor seems a bit reluctant to commit to a date as yet which is a little frustrating for planning. The tiling has been completed and the drive way which we are very happy with.
