(above) our first night in our home.
(above) Mark rolling the first coat of paint for the garage floor... no stains here.
(above) our wardrobe. I spent AGES trying to make it look neat, and it still looks messy. Off to Howards Storage World I say... We need some boxes on the top shelp I think.
(above) our gorgeous kitchen. I am living here atm.
(above) the bifold door is amazing, lets so much breeze in... and flies and christmas beetles too. Thank goodness Mark is sorting our flyscreens as we speak.
(above) our brand spanking new oven that we got yesterday. I used the stove last night, I had forgotten how much I LOVE a stovetop.
(above) our dishwasher. I forgot that I had this last night and washed and wiped up. Might be for when we have guests over I think.
(above) there is a little hint of Christmas at our place.

Our minds are going absolutely crazy with excitement atm, thinking of all the things that we want to do around the house. Mark is busy painting the garage floor with water based apoxy paint, and I am trying to organise this chaos that has hit our beautiful home. We know that it will NEVER be finished, but that is the fun of it isn't it? We'll just have to put of the kid thing for about five years I think.

So, it all started last Wednesday when we had our PCI (practical completition inspection). Unfortunately it was my Wednesday to work so Mark had to go it alone, but I had the feeling that he could handle it by himself ;). After me annoying him with my phonecalls, he told me that it went well, but our poor house looked like it had blue chicken pox.
Our SS addressed all of our concerns and most of them were to be fixed (and some not, boo!!) and we were pleased to see that most things were just to be touch up jobs by the painters. After the PCI, we were happily told that our handover date was to be the following Wednesday the 2nd of Dec, Woohoo!! Finally.
Our excitement fell just as fast as it rose when the bank told us that we shouldn't get our hopes up as they don't think that they will be able to do the valuation within that time frame (another boo!!).
So that is the latest for us. We still have absolutely no idea when we will be moving in, but it will be soon. The most frustrating thing is that it's the busiest time of the year for us, so it's really hard to take time off work. Luckily the girls (especially the manager) are really good about it all and are willing to help out so we can get handover.
Sorry, this post is all over the place, is a bit early for blogging :D. Will let you know if anything else eventuates.

No news yet on when we are able to move in. Our SS has seemed to gone AWOL, and we are a little disheartened as everyone else that we know who are building are almost done. We are thinking that he is waiting for Mark to finish the flooring so that the painters can come in and finish the skirting and the rest of the painting. We will see. Lucky I have a patient sister and brother in law :).

So here are some pics of our progress, I may even get to take some this afternoon when I do a driveby. Depends if we have had some more done today, but I am not getting my hopes up, so much has already happened that I don't want to be greedy. We will see.
(above) his steps are a masterpiece as far as I am concearned. Especially having to work with the bricks underneath. Well done baby :D.
