Celebration Homes Build in Piara Waters WA [Moved In]

Hey!
I haven't actually got around to doing the side and rear landscaping yet, so it is still just sand. I really need to just map out what I want to…

Yeah, it's not cheap either. I forget the price to move it, but to sink it in a box it was $660.
The developer set all of that out. The capped…

Those darn water meters. I ran over mine too. Ended up paying water corp a lot of money to sink it into the ground and put it…

I think they deliver new bins on Tuesday mornings. You get…

A quick note with the insurance. Generally your bank won't release the final payment unless you show them you have insurance (certificate of currency). I took out my insurance on…

I thought it was a bit expensive but I couldn't be bothered dealing with it and looking for other quotes. I think it was $400 for the gate and $100…

Hey,
I hit them up separately just before they did my fence install to get a quote for a side gate. It ended up being $660 and I went with it.…

There are quite a few things they deliver before they start the bricks. I believe they were; Bricks, Window Frames, Sliding Door Frames, Front Door Frame, Skip Bin, Toilet, Storage…

Exciting times! I went every day when my bricks started.
With mine the bricks started exactly 4 weeks after the slab went down, which was about 2 weeks after they were…

Yeah, I am using an oil based sealer. Solver Wall Sealer. It seems to vary from wall to wall. Some walls it goes on easily and others just soak it…

I think next time I will just hire a painter.
3 full days with 3 people working on it so far and we are still sealing the walls. They were filthy…

Keys tomorrow morning! Straight into the painting on Tuesday. Spent some time at Solver on Saturday but still don't have a colour. Picked up the sealer and the paint…

Another super late update!
The house was finished off over the weekend and today was PCI! It went really well with only minor issues being found by both myself and the…

Here are a few more recent photos of the house. Main floor tiling was finished last week.
Only outstanding items now are: Carpets, Paving, Garage Door, Final Render/Gable Painting, Cleaning.

It feels like forever at the time and then when you look back it's like "that was fast". Less than 3 weeks to go until PCI.
Last week all of the…

That's interesting. Which bank are you with?
I am through Bankwest and they had no issues with the digital signatures I used to sign my Celebrations contracts.

Another belated update!
Things were a bit quiet the last couple of weeks.
Two weeks ago the ceilings and cornices went in and the front drainpipes were attached.


We finally reached lock up…
