Building A New House

I'm a little bit annoyed today! My partner got a call yesterday from one of our neighbours to let us know that some kids who live down the street had drawn all over our render with chalk and also been throwing sand from our sand pile out onto the road
My partner managed to get the chalk off and also found the kids who did it (they had drawn all over the road outside their house with the same chalk) and he has asked them not to do it again. The parents were nowhere to be seen Hopefully that is the end of it.

Our cupboards and benchtops were all delivered yesterday. They haven't been installed yet but here are a couple of pics.
You can see that the pantry shelves have also been installed too!

A few more photos.. A lot of people have said that everything slows right down after reaching lock up but it seems like Celebration are still full steam ahead! Hopefully I haven't jinxed myself by saying that...

Another update. My partner had a meeting with the site supervisor and the tiler this morning. Tiles should be finished by the end of next week. The ceilings are being painted at the moment too. The site supervisor seems to think we will get the keys by the end of January!
Here are a couple of pics from last weekend..

Thanks Tezza yep we are getting very excited.
Unfortunately we didn't get the stone benchtops. Its our first home and we had quite a large block, so to be able to afford the home we wanted we had to delete a couple of things (stone benchtops, ducted a/c - saved us about $10k off the total price).

Here are a few more photos - the tiling is finished now!
Ensuite niche/feature wall:
Splashback.. It is a little hard to see the mosaic detailing in the tiles in this photo because of the glare:

Thanks! I really liked them when I chose them, but while I was waiting for the build to start and before they went up on the wall I was really second guessing my choice.. Now I love them again haha!

Sorry, it has been awhile since I've done an update. No, we are not in the house yet, but we are having our final inspection in a week or so, and providing there isn't much to do following on from that we should have handover another week or so after that!
We then will need to get cracking on the painting and flooring, then we will be in
Here are a couple of photos of our finished render colour and also our flyscreen doors which were installed yesterday:

Hi Rubes - love all the pictures of your house, you must be super excited to see it nearly finished. We are just starting our build with celebrations and really looking forward to seeing our house get built as well. How did you find the general quality of the work done by the builders? Did you spot any errors during the build or are there any places you think we should look as the house gets built? We had one or two errors with the final plans/addenda where things had been marked up wrong so hoping those kinds of errors don't happen during the build.
