All I want for Christmas…

imageLast Christmas and the Christmases before that, I would have been thrilled to receive anything packaged in a teeny tiny egg blue box! It certainly made present buying for moi a breeze.

Well, fast forward to 2014 and what a difference a few months make!

This year all I really want for Christmas is a nice solid CONCRETE SLAB, just like this little beauty!


It was hubby’s birthday last Thursday and Metricon came to the party by sending us the final construction drawings and contract variations on the day. Surprisingly we picked up only a couple of really minor errors that were corrected straight away. If only Metricon had shown the same urgency in resolving  issues we had flagged in earlier stages, we would probably be halfway through the build by now!

Anyhoo signing off on the last set of paperwork meant we are now officially OUT of admin and finally we’ve reached the exciting construction stage. We also said goodbye to our CSC who has been a good support throughout the lengthy and quite stressful pre-construction phase. We now get assigned a Site Manager (SM) and Construction Support Coordinator (CSC). What a milestone!

So, with 30 days left until Christmas, I have my fingers crossed Metricon will play Santa and grant my wish for a  slab. They certainly seem to be in a gift-giving mood as they sent us a little gift in the mail for reaching 10,000 page views. Thank you Metricon and thank you awesome readers for getting us over the 10,000 mark!!!

    Congratulations Sheilzy! You will get a lot more bang for your buck with a concrete slab than a little egg blue box! I’m so happy you resolved all the issues and are moving swiftly forward. If Shambini’s build is anything to go by you will have your beautiful slab by Christmas.

    Great news that you are finished with paperwork at last. It’s interesting that M are paying attention to your stats… Maybe they should put you in their marketing payroll.

    Great to hear that you are ready to roll! This is the exciting part now, still frustrating but far more fun than paperwork. Will keep my fingers crossed you get your ‘xmas wish 🙂

    Congrats! We are building in North Ryde with Metricon and they are pouring our slab this Thursday (as long as the weather holds up). They have been extremely quick thus far and I believe you will get your slab in 2-3 weeks .

      Hello fellow Metricon builder! What an exciting Thursday you have coming up. I’m a bit jealous but hopefully our slab isn’t too far behind. Which design are you building? Do you have a blog I can follow?

    We are building a modified Glendale 38(upsized to 44sq). Ive been meaning to create a blog, but have used the lack of time as an excuse – might create one this weekend. Since your in the ryde area, i believe you will also have the same Site manager: JM?

    • Sheilzy says:

      We haven’t heard from the construction team yet but no doubt we will share the same SS. The Glendale is lovely and seems to be quite popular. You should start a blog so I can stalk your progress😜
