Happy New Year everyone!

If 2014 was the year of planning and designing the dream home, 2015 is the year that we finally get to see that vision come to fruition. It’s so damn exciting to know that sometime in the not so distant future we will be living and making memories in our new home sweet home. What a truly privileged position to be in!

We ended the year on a high with my Christmas wish for a slab coming true a week before the industry shutdown. The experts on Homeone forum tell me the slab should reach a minimum 75% of the design strength after 7 days and reach full strength after 28 days. Before the break, our site manager told us that he was planning for framing to start next Monday 12 Jan, exactly 28 days after the slab pour. What perfect timing! We haven’t heard back from him so fingers and toes crossed that we see some framing action as planned.

It’s early days but at this point, we are hoping for an end of June handover date. In an ideal world, Metricon should complete the house within the 32 week contract timeframe so we should get keys no later than 8th July. Let’s hope they deliver on time if not beforeπŸ˜„

6 months from this…

To this …

Piece of cake😜

As an aside the blog has clocked over 16,000 page views. Seems like not so long ago when we hit the 10,000 milestone so it looks like the blog is getting more traffic from here and afar. It never ceases to amaze me when I notice a new reader from an exotic country like Sudan, Brunei and Saudi Arabia pop up in my stats feed. Thank you all for dropping by for a visit and supporting the blog. I look forward to sharing the building journey with you!
