Your security screens look great! I have just contacted them, will wait to hear back from them. Thanks for the info- I always like to use companies where others have had such a positive experience.
What a shame about the fencing, how disappointing that they couldn't get it all done for you when they said they would. I would be frustrated too having spent money on your soil conditioning and getting rid of the sand.
Wishing you happy & safe travels!!

Hi jelbell thanks! Yes I'm the same, prefer to use someone from a recommendation!
We've had blinds installed today by West Coast Blinds WA http://www.westcoastblindswa.com/ who were recommended by Nikki on here and was also used by Antheabw. Have only seen a photo or 2 but it looks great I think. They were also very good to work with, accommodating, professional quotes and they go out to your house with samples if required which is great. Their quote wasn't the cheapest we had (although not much more than the lowest), but we much preferred their customer service!

It all looks lovely Mal! I think the tile colour ties in a lot better now too.
Have a good flight!

Looks great Mals! Love your stone in the kitchen! Tiles are fine and so are the blinds. Isn't it nice working with professionals? So much less stress, a lesson in that for your builder I think. Safe travels and enjoy your Christmas with family x

I was just thinking tiles look heaps better too. Yay thank god for that. Hoping you are starting to like them. Blinds look great.
Yay you are almost here and on holidays. Woo hoo such a great feeling and then throw a brand new house on top of that SUPER exciting.
Sorry to hear about the fencers. What slackers.

Well well, for once all I've been reading are positive comments in this thread from you Mal (with exception to silly fence guys) which is great to see!
You'll be here soon so hopefully you enjoy what's to be your new house and will be impressed when you get to see it in person!

Hey Mal, just had a super quick catch up. It all sounds positive and looks amazing.
I hope everything has gone well today and have a good flight!!
Can't wait to see some finished pictures from when you're here!

Thanks, everyone, it has been a very long day already! Been up since 2am - couldn't sleep
My folks picked up the key this morning ! They said the CLO is lovely - I'm sorry I won't get to meet her. Nikki, it would seem you were short changed - we got a keyring!
But boo... The dishwasher isn't installed as it was meant to be, instead we had to order it over the phone from the suppliers so it'll only be delivered early Jan to be installed after by RedInk's plumbers who are all on holiday now. Oh well probably not the end of the world but it is a bit disappointing. Who's going to wash the dishes???
My folks went there now and they found to their surprise that the fence has been finished and we have a gate - even though not 100% complete! Not sure who did it, as they didn't respond to emails and their out of office said they're only back in Jan but it was a lovely surprise.
(These photos have a strange blue cast - not sure why probably because it is a bit dark already!)
Yesterday was my last day at work for a bit more than a month - the OH is still working today We leave home tomorrow morning arriving in Perth early evening on Christmas. We'll sleep in our own house on Christmas - how good is that?
Even though there has been so many hiccups along the way and many stressful moments, we have the keys now and we hope to find that we can live with the tiles - we're not convinced just yet. And that the PCI lists have been completed - we've not been able to verify this, and we know of a few outstanding issues. But I have to say RedInk has picked up their game a bit the last few weeks and we are thankful for that. Chris, thanks again for your help to get our issues addressed - it really is very much appreciated.
So now we're looking forward to seeing it in the 'flesh' - we can't quite believe that the day has finally arrived!
I'll be signing off for now, will try to update as and when we can - thank you all so much for living through our build with us, it has been such a lovely place to be and I'm not quite sure how we'd have survived the process from over here without this wonderful forum and all of you lovelies.
I wish for you all the most wonderful Christmas and New Years xxxxx
