Yeah save now while you can! You might think you dont have anything to do with brand new house but you will end up with a long to do list and other things will happen you didnt expect (your brother running over the water meter :-x )

Thanks! Pretty annoying water corp came in and moved it when we weren't there, they told us they were coming on Monday so we were gonna have a chat to them then about moving it out of the way, but now we will need to pay to get them out again if we want it moved. They also said it should really be o...

Not sure we'll get keys Monday now. Found out yesterday that the bank had called Celebrations to organise a valuer inspection but they had not heard back from them in 2 days. As long as we get the keys by Thursday we aren't too fazed but that was a little disappointing.

Sorry to keep asking you annoying questions but when I think of something I remember you are great insight into what I am about to go through so.. Have you connected to the NBN yet? what is the deal with that? how early should I organise it / how long did it take for them to come out and set it up? ...

Only big mistake was one of my conduit points I had in the garage was used for the power, ie they missed one during rough in. Because its single brick and face brick the garage, they could cut ...

Painting completed yesterday, all internal and also fixing the wall they missed on the front render. Someone forgot to lock the back door so we may or may not have had a look inside again. The ceiling has also been fixed where they had to move the LED's but the pendants are not all installed yet. Th...

Pre Handover meeting was supposed to be yesterday but was pushed back because of the lighting issue. They did take the opportunity to push back everything else as well which is suspect but hoping to see it all pretty much done today/tomorrow with new meeting scheduled for next Monday. So the additio...

Not hopeful on getting the LED's moved, which is annoying because we added extra LED's because of the layout we were very specific on. So a word of warning, if you want your electrical in a specific location then either have it dimensioned on the drawing or do it yourself after handover. Also the bu...
