Bits and Pieces.. making it livable - Stage 1

Here is a glimpse of our first 6 days living here, we havent had the dough for the furniture that I would love, so we are making do with whatever we had in our other home.. Looks a little sparse, but its going to be this way for a while... would love to have a rug, our coffee table ( wished I had a new one) is still in storage somewhere. and also, a plant at the corner with a ornamental ladder shelf. hmm, wishlist 1.

Hubby calls this junk, but am loving the white ceremic.

Study with no bookshelf or table. Wishlist 2. Saw a french provincial one but my accounting books dont agree to it at the moment.  Bookshelf to be around 3 meters along the wall that you can see, and study table to go along window on the right.

This wall panel was ( if you see my eailer posts) was bought Dec last year, but the order came through in Easter.... finally up!

After many attempts, hubby is happy with this clock. Everything looks too distressed to him, but he'll settle for this.

Dining area, overlooking backyard. Cant' wait for clothes line to be up!

Backyard needing a LOT of love!

Media Room with no media! I am glad we are not TV addicts, so its not a bad thing, having more book time with kiddo!

Little bits, at the top of kitchen cabinet ( on the right)

This also has been bought for a while, now under the stairs in the hallway, handy for wearing shoes.
Realised that it was a good thing getting things beforehand, as now there are so many other little things that we need to get, and like the saying goes, too many things, too little cash :)

Am going to blog my wishlist sometime soon!

Nearly There.....

Here is our new home - not quite there but nearly.......

Rangehood and stove not in yet.

Theatre Room - empty for a while, projector systems are not cheap!

Here is our balcony view!

Our ensuite

Common Bathroom

Front entry at night - this is bad because all the tiles are smeared in concrete and cannot be removed despite my scrubbing, hopefully addressed soon.

like I said, its not quite there yet so expect more updates soon.

We have the keys!!

Ladies & Gentlemen, the deal is now done - not completed yet but till we go over the next hurdle, its step 1 for us!  Signed and recieved keys on 12 Aug, 8am.

And yes, got this too, I prefer a spa, need it after dealing with them! haha. :)

Not finished I must say, waiting for appliances to go in, there are a few issues that have not been completed yet, so yes, the journey still continues...

Final Inspection - 8 August

I have not been posting any updates as there are hardly any in the past few months, except that a new Building Manager has taken over my job & the SS has left ( thank goodness, as things were very slow under his care) Manager said to give him a weeks and he'll work through the 80 defects that we have. Indeed, this is now done!

We went through the house for our Final Inspection ( with wet floors) and except for a few small items, that is promisee to be done by the week, we are happy to accept the place! whew....

Kitchen  - pardon the darkness of the photo & my skills.

Theatre Room

Settlement will take place at 8am this friday, 12 Aug, and then I will be frantically cleaning on Sat & Sun! Appliances booked in for next week and we should have a place to call home by that weekend!! Yipee!
