The countdown

Well we rushed around and sorted out the mortgage so we are ready for settlement> Was going to happen Monday but now Thursday.

Top soil was delivered and spread out on Saturday.

The paint touch ups and other fixes should be done tomorrow/Tuesday. Final inspection on Thursday hopefully and a handover of the keys!

We noticed a cracked tile on the front porch yesterday and also one of the pipes connecting the rain water tank has been a massive hole in it (think the landscaper has done it), so I guess that will be something to get fixed once we are moved in as I doubt it would be fixed before Thursday.

Our current house is filled with boxes as we packed the remaining things today with enough to get us through the week.

Also busy organising fence quotes. Good news is the vacant block next to us said to send through the quote we go with and they will organise their 50% (this is Eden Brae). House behind is rented so need to chase up the owners. Hopefully there are no delays with them.

Hoping to start the moving process on Saturday and get everything moved over to our new home :)

5 more days!


  1. WOW Congrats, what an exciting 5 days ahead. I hope all goes well and you get those keys on Thursday. It seems like McDonald Jones have it together and all should go well. The McDonald Jones near us, they have already moved in, that was the quickest build yet!

    Have a good week!

  2. Yay, not long to go at all! How frustrating is it though with everything in boxes, at least you will be ready to move straight in! Hope it all goes well this week and on-schedule for Thursday :-)

  3. How exciting, the race is on! Good luck with the move and don't forget to update us with pics! :)

  4. Thanks everyone. Hope it all goes smoothly. Weather should not be a problem this week at least.
    Cass - we went past I think Friday night and couldn't believe they were in. I wonder if they have flooring etc?
    Mel - yes it's frustrating.
    Pandorash8 - yes will update with pictures. Still need to put some up of the carpet too.
    4 days to go...
