Post hand over update

Hi All,

We've been extremely busy over the last few weeks with trades coming and going to rectify some of the pending post hand over items we had. We did have some major issues such as no hot water etc... but they have since been rectified. Kudos to our SS for answering my phone calls and emails every day without fail to ensure we we're being looked after.

Few photos to share with everyone.

Settlement - Quick update

Hi All,

Apologies for the lack of updates. It's been a crazy week. The good news is we now have ownership of the house :)

That's not to say that all the issues have been rectified. We are still missing a toilet in the en-suite but that's a whole other story.

Electrician was on-site the next day to do down lights, alarm, pendants etc... Here are some photos:

Will post some more photos up once we have flooring done.

PCI Completed - Hand over delayed...

Today was our scheduled PCI date. We got up nice and early for an 8 AM start and went in with some Croissants :)

Getting on-site we were surprised to see that Darren from Darbecca and our SS were already on-site ready to go!

In general, all went quite smoothly. The SS was quite open to any issues we had and touch-ups that we wanted marked. He pretty much let us go nuts with the stickers... Don't ask how many we used!

Comments from our independent included: Great brick work, one of the best roof insulation jobs he has seen and unfortunately... a very average paint job. I agree with him on all points.

Pretty much 90% of our door and window architraves are showing the nails used to fix them and are so obvious in any light. Fortunately, PD have agreed to sand them all back and re-paint. 

Out of respect for our SS and PD I will not share the more serious items (only 2) raised by our independent. They have agreed to rectify them of course.

Finally, we only managed to snap up a few photos for family more than anything but will share below. The red dots are ours.
