We are in

We moved in on 21 December and are delighted to finally be living in our new home. 

Rawson did a great job rectifying most issues discussed at our practical completion inspection and we have only found about 4 issues to put on the list for post-handover rectification. 

The biggest issue so far has nothing to do with Rawson and everything to do with unreliable electrical appliances. The Samsung fridge was broken and had to be taken away and replaced, one of two ceiling fans doesn’t work and the heater panels installed in our al fresco area broke/stopped working the first time they were turned on 😤

Also Telstra has been ineffective and inefficient connecting up our phone line/ADSL. Far too many phone calls required to a company whose sole job it is to provide telephone services. We are promised the line will be activated today but nothing so far. 

Crappy outcomes and ones we’ll be chasing into the New Year, as nothing will be resolved over Christmas 🎄 

But these are minor inconveniences in the grand scheme of things. 

We are delighted with our light fixtures and our new furniture. Everything looks wonderful and we are looking forward to hosting 10 people for Christmas lunch tomorrow. Just about 20 boxes to unpack before then!


Happy days!

Nearly there

Our practical completion inspection went well. Most of the pick-ups were rework for the painters, which is underway as I type.

The Certificate of Occupancy was issued this week and the bank’s evaluator will make his inspection tomorrow. This should trigger final payment to Rawson from the bank.

This means we should get the keys on Friday 16 or Monday 19 December. Our removal is booked for 20 Dec, with delivery on 21 Dec. Looks like we’ll just make it in time for Christmas 😊
