We Have Visitors

Wednesday, 31 July 2013


Were off to pre start and I have the flu :( oh doesn't that suck. Oh well it will stil be an exciting day. Dropped my kids off at 9.30 to their Grandmas and me and my hubby head to docklands. Did some shopping at DFO then headed to our appointment. OMG the first hour is spent with our prestart lady explaining the first page of out HIA contract, it then speeds up and we sign our lives away. After a quick ciggy were off to the show room. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I think the month of stalking estates and playing on Metricons envisage had paid off.

We ended up upgrading a few things
* front door to Hume Newington XN5
* added a junction box to each pillar so we can add a fancy light after hand over
*extended the splash back tiles
*changed both bathroom towel rails to 900m double for family bathroom and a 600m double for our ensuite.

Tarryn our pre start lady was fantastic she liked the same colours as me so we flew through the show room. Home buyers centre, last week upgraded there standard flooring from vinyl to laminate which was awesome news for us.
