What a whirlwind few days! Practical completion took place on Thursday 13th and we took possession of keys on Friday 14th August. Yeah baby, our Hudson is finally ours!!!


Handover gift from Metricon

We are busy unpacking and organising post handover jobs. It will be a while yet before we can rest and truly enjoy the fruits of our labour. But the road ahead will be much easier now that we are living in our new home. 

My little blog has clocked over 54,000 page views since I published my very first post back in June 2014! Wow I’m blown away. I feel like I’ve shared this journey with you awesome readers. Thank you for all the comments, suggestions and design ideas over the last yearπŸ˜„ I will be back to blog about my post-build reviews and share moved-in photos.

The winner of the blog’s GUESS OUR HANDOVER DATE COMPETITION is the lovely Deb, who was only one day shy of the actual handover date with her guess of 13 August 2015. I will be in touch to organise delivery of Shaynna’s book.

    I noticed that your timber floor does not have scotia, but just the skirting board. Did you get M to install the skirting board after the installation of the timber floor?
