Finish line???

Sorry for the lack of updates but we have been super busy..The finish line is near. Our handover has been postponed again and we have a list of almost 20 items that need to be finished.
I guess any build experience has its moments but when your so close to the end is when the frustration really kicks in. Fairmont have been great to deal with but we just wish things would move abit quicker. We are getting close to a year now.
On a brighter note we have bought the kids new bedroom suites and tasmanian oak dining table chairs bar stools coffee table bookcases and tv unit...cant wait for those to come. We also bought ourselves a nice outdoor setting... 
Will post some photos soon.

Tiling tiling and more tiling

So we have had some great progress in the last two weeks..staircase architraves base coat paint waterproofing have all been done. Most doors and our front door are in too. The tilet has been working hard too. We boughttwo louges from plush the other day aswell. One a light colour for upstairss and a dark greyish one for downstairs. Hubby really wanted a ligher coloured one for downstairs too but with two children under 5 i fidnt want to be stressing about a couch. Hope it looks ok with the taupe coloured tiles. Photos to come.....

More bricks..

More bricks have been delivered last week as we where about 1000 short. Hoping to see it finally completed this week. The balcony is coming along really nicely.

The brickwork has been completed and it looks better than we imagined. Its so nice and big...perfect for relaxing on breazy summer nights while the kids are asleep ;)

We went past the display homes again today and we confirmed that our design is exactly what we wanted. Its hard to build something you have never seen and hope to have made the right choices but we confirmed it today. Its not too big and not small. We never wanted a house that we would have to spend too much time cleaning... its just perfect in size and we still 3 lounge rooms study and 4 bedrooms...more than enough!!

We have been trying to get ideas on lounges but its so hard unless you actually see the space and imagine where everything will be. Considering it takes 3 months to order most leather lounges, it looks like we might be sitting on the floor for a while. Oh well.. its all good. Just wish we could move in tomorrow!!
We have great plans for the landscaping too... cant wait to plant some veggies and get the birds and guinea pigs, rabbits and maybe chooks ( if hubby lets me) all settled in.

Anyhow here is a progress pick. The balcony will be bagged...thats why there is a different coloured brick..
