We're in!!!

Have you had enough suspense?

We moved into our beautiful home last Friday!!!! 5 months to the day & 6 weeks early!

Bank came through with the goods in the nick of time & handover went smoothly, unless you count having your oven STOLEN the night before settlement as 'smooth'!!! The only saving grace was that the builder was responsible for replacing it and they didn't do any damage when removing it. Can you believe it???? Was an inside job too as they had let themselves in with their trade key.

That aside, we are all moved in now and our oven has since been replaced. We have unpacked lots but still have boxes waiting their turn to be up ended.

The boys are happy that they can finally watch cartoons again now that we have an arial & foxtel went in today.

Quotes for drive way tomorrow.

Busy times but it has sooooo been worth the wait. We are all just loving our new home.

Will be back with more of an update and pics when I have more than a phone to update with.

Hi Karla,
We've just moved into our EB home on the 8th July also - across the road in NRH.
Got a little tip that may interest you, when we had our driveway & path laid, we got a length of 50mm PVC pipe & got the guys to put it across ground B4 the paving was laid, helpful if you want to put watering or cables for lighting in later & it didn't cost that much :-)

Karla said...

Thanks everyone!!

Tonia, are you in now?

Neville, great tip. Thanks!

Congratulations Karla and Barry!!

Just thought I'd drop you a quick note to wish you and your family the very best for the future in your lovely new home.

Also, many thanks for such a positive 'upbeat' blog and comment in 'Product Review'. Much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Bede from EBH
