On Friday 1st July we received the keys to the house!!! We are extremely excited and very happy to have access to the house whenever we like....to own it! Our SS went through all the necessary paperwork, gave us keys for windows, bi fold doors, main doors and garage door and gave us remotes to our large garage door, (it will be so nice to be able to walk from the car to the house with the comfort of internal access). Our SS also gave us a lovely gift from Metricon, a box with goodies for the kitchen, a nice gesture that added to the great afternoon. We have been at the house over the weekend doing work in the garden. We have also been looking at tiles and carpet for the rest of the house. We have carpet in the 3 bedrooms already, as it was part of the promotion, but decided to do the other rooms ourselves to try and reduce the cost. We have finalised the tiles down to 2. The photo is a bit poor, but I have moved tiles around so often in the past week, so I took the photo from where they are. The tiles will be laid within the next 2 weeks, and the carpet possibly 1-2 weeks, depending how long it takes us to decide on the carpet and supplier. I will post some more photos once the tiles and carpet are installed.  

It is comforting to know we will be dealing with our SS over the next 3 months to attend to any issues. There are a few outstanding items we decided to wait for as they needed time to book in the tradesmen and we are keen to get the flooring done.

After process of elimination we are down to these 2 tiles
