About Me

My photo
I am a SAHM who does work from home occasionally, dedicated to raising 3 Godly, independent, healthy children. Loving the home building process though it is not without challenges. I have fairly free reign over the creative aspect of the project...just not the financial side!

Enjoying having lawn for the first time ever!

Yesterday, as I was 'soaking the lawn' the children had a spontaneous play even though it was reasonably chilly for a summers day. Never before have I lived in a house with grass - and I am living in my 5th home. Such a novelty!

Maintenance inspection

This past week has seen the 13 week inspection date come and go! Eden Brae are not able to get the Supervisor out until early March. Whoa! To be honest, I wasn't bothered at all which I think surprised my CSA. For me, it means an extra 6 weeks for issues to arise that may get fixed. Once your list has been agreed on with your supervisor, nothing can be added. I seen the delay as being a win then. The items I have contacted Eden Brae about since settlement have been IMMEDIATELY acted uon. So far no fault at all with after sales customer service eg. toilet cistern, kitchen mixer tap. I initially had items listed here on the blog (straight after settlement)  that would have come up at this maintenance inspection but Troy came straight around and fixed most of them up himself. Here are the things that I will be discussing with Jason, the Maintenance Supervisor.

Calling it done!

....even though there are a handful of minor things to be completed next week. Things such as timber seating, pebbles laid, trimming some timber from retaining walls, a few more plants, guerneying the house/alfresco etc. The pool fence is rumoured to be done next Thursday which then leaves Concept Pools to finish off the pool. Maybe before the end of summer???

Here are some rainy twilight photos for you to enjoy.
