Settling in

Everything's going pretty well.
We've had a few hickups, like everyone...
Still no phone line. A Telstra tech came out and got the number patched through as far as the neighbours place, but now we have to wait until a borer is available to get across to our place.

We had a
a water leak inside an external wall
a gas leak under the cooktop
a leak from a drain pipe in the laundry
a light with a dodgy connection

And still have (I haven't had time to mention to the builder at all)
a laundry door lock that wont unlock
some missing grout
about 1/2 dozen bricks missing from the wall from the plumber
and the theatre room lights that were supposed to be wired in 2 banks of 2 (switched separately front and back) are all on one switch.

But we're having a great time in our new place. So close to work, and nice and big, with heaps of storage.
Once I get a phone line, and then an internet connection, I'll up some photos.

And we're off...

Truck's almost packed.
This will be my last post from our old house. There's no phone etc at the new one yet, so may not be back for a bit.

Nope, not yet.

When the builder suggested about a week and a half ago that we should be moving in this weekend just gone, we told a few of you, but it wasn't to be.
I think the shower screens and mirrors got installed on Friday, but we haven't been able to see them yet.
The final 'council' inspection was done today - but we don't know the results, and the valuer didn't turn up or get in contact with the builder, so we don't know what he's up to.
So at this stage I have no idea when we'll be moving.
