M & C's First Build with HGWA - Eglinton

Depending how handy you are they aren't too hard to do yourself and you can pick some up for a relatively decent price at Ikea.
That's what we were originally going…

Thanks mrsdoe! It's crazy to think that it could all be completed in as little as 4 weeks from now! Gonna have to start collecting boxes to start packing stuff…

Weekly update from the builder came through. Apparently tiling of the wet areas is progressing well and we should be moving into "finals" next week. Apparently that includes things like…

Looks good Dee! Shame about the windows not being sealed properly but better to pick it up now rather than after you've moved in!

I think as long as it's not a change that will require everything to be resent for approvals they should be pretty accommodating at pre-start. Don't imagine a nice will…

The house is looking great mrsdoe! Amazing how quickly it's all coming together! Great news on the kitchen cabinets being fixed up!

If you send a message to the developer they might clear it for you. They don't want the place looking like a dumping ground while still trying to sell land

I'd love some fruit trees but they might end up out the front. Annoying part of the minimum setbacks is looking at all the front yard space and thinking how…

Yeah. I really have to start thinking about that. Still a bit undecided. Likely going to have a small shed in the back left corner but that's as far as…

Yeah it won't be too bad. I grew up around success. I've just gotten use to be so close to the city and all the great shops n restaurants around

Yep. That's one of the down sides of the size of the blocks nowadays. On the plus side we have a few parks around the house so we get greenery…

Thanks Dee.
We live up in Bedford at the moment so a bit of a change.

Haha I wish that was our yard! It's actually looking out onto the vacant block next to ours. We will be looking at a fence out that window soon

Yeah. The gap doesn't bither us too much on cabinets. We have a similar set up in our rental at the moment. I'll probably store the cookbooks up there
