Thank you everyone tomorrow is the big day very exciting! we went passed this arvo for a look, we couldn't get in but it looks like the cleaners have been and the skip is gone but still no panel door.
They have finally opened the big new playground at the end of our street, the girls absolutely loved it.
Not long now I can't wait

We got to "legally" walk through our house this morning it was awesome! No major issues just a few touch ups here and there but all in all very happy
It is all up to the bank now, as soon as our final payment gets made we will get the keys and it will officially be ours!! hopefully that happens in the next few days and then the real fun can begin

Thats great Davcar...congratulations and good luck for the move What tips for PCI have got for us? What little things do you need fixed up?
Thankyou Zub it is very exciting. There is not much to fix, a couple of marks in the walls and ceiling, the electricians forgot to put a separate switch for the pendants in the kitchen and a panel in the kitchen island bench need tightening but that is it. When we were there the SS had his maintenance guy waiting so he could fix any issues there and then and also the kitchen guy showed up to fix the kitchen issue.
Not sure what advice I can give, the whole inspection went pretty quickly. I would definitely say make sure you bring up all of your concerns and even though it seems overwhelming try and look at everything. The good thing is you get a 3 month maintenance period for any issues that might get missed

How easy were they to deal with in booking a time for PCI. My hubby is a teacher and I'm worried we will find it difficult to get a time that suits us for PCI as we both work 40kms in opposite directions from the house. We are also thinking of bringing an extra set of eyes with us, just in case we do miss something... good idea?

I think an extra set of eyes is a good idea, it is definitely a lot to take in. We were watching the progress most days so we pretty much knew what needed extra attention and Like i said to Lucinda, you get a 3 month maintenance period so if anything is missed they will come back to fix it up.
I assume you would have the same SS as us he was really easy going and im sure he would be willing to work around your schedule
