Final update

After an attempted break in which left me with a broken kitchen window and a nice big rock in the sink I am now living in the house and won't be udating this blog anymore.

Thankyou to everyone who sent positive e-mails and comments. It's been a fun process updating the blog and keeping you all informed and I hope your building process goes as smoothly as mine has.

Allworth have been fantastic and I can highly recommend them.

All the best

I have a house :-)

Handover occurred at 9:00AM today. It was very exciting and I am now the proud owner of a new house. The whole thing went very smoothly.

Allworth have done a fantastic job in less time than stated in the contract. I have based start time on when the block was cut which happened on Tuesday the 27/01/09 until handover today, Tuesday the 2/06/09. That's a total of 126 days or exactly 18 weeks. The contract was for 19 weeks and there had been two one week extensions because of rain yet they still managed to finish ahead of schedule and the quality of the finish is excellent. I had a pretty good look and couldn't even find a single paint run anywhere. I will try to post some pictures later in the week after I have had a more thorough inspection.

Now if only the rain would go away for a few weeks so the ground can dry out enough for the concreter to put in my paths and driveway.
