I met with Wayne the SS this morning at 10am and went over the house for about 40mins. I was happy to see the front pillars had been completed in the Moroka finish and It seemed like cleaners and tradies had been in again bright and Early as some of the things I had been planning on talking about had already been fixed this morning (Tiles missing silicon beading along edges). The front door had also received it's first coat of varnish. The rest of the things I asked about he reassured me that he had already picked up on and that they would be fixed in the next couple of weeks. So, as of now we are waiting on
- a couple of paint cleaning/touch up spots
- Front door needs to be re-varnished
- 2 of the back doors and ensuite window need rollers adjusted
- Main bathroom door stop needs replaced
- Another downpipe to Rainwater tank
- Up and Down lights in front pillars
- Outside ducted A/C unit
- Hotwater system
He said that it usually takes about 3 weeks from this point but could be faster or slower depending on all the processes. So as of now I am waiting for Eden Brae to send me their final invoice which I can send to Suncorp bank along with the Final draw request, a valuation request, a letter of satisfaction and a copy of Home and contents insurance policy (Haven't signed up with anyone yet, any ideas?). This should see a valuer out within 48hrs and should keep things moving nicely.
On a side note we are getting fences done on one side, and I will be looking to complete the other two sides just around the time we are moving in. At the moment it looks like all fences will have to be raised a bit so that I can build a retaining wall underneath them so as to fill the backyard a bit. I'm hoping to be able to do this myself, but may consider getting someone in to do it if the price isn't too bad.
Anyway, Wayne has told me that he should have a handover date for us next week!
