Nearly there!

We are about two weeks away from having the house finished (more or less!). We have had painters, tilers, plumbers, carpenters and electricians in recently and a walk through planned early next week. Kitchen is in. Bathrooms are all but done, just need shower screens. I'll add more photos once we can get in and it's looking a lot cleaner. Handover is anticipated for December 20th. However, wanted to mention a couple of stores who have provided great service lately.

We bought an outdoor setting this weekend from The Outdoor Furniture Specialists on Blaxland Rd. Pickup from Smeaton Grange. The service from Sue was amazing. Seriously. If you need an outdoor setting/furniture etc, consider these guys because she really knew her stuff. Lay by is an option if you find yourself buying a crapload of essential items for your home. Granted, this was not essential, but I think we needed to buy ourselves a 'present' for the new place :)

The other recommendation is for A Melbourne based company. We ordered our shutters a couple of months back. If you're handy around the house you should definitely consider them! Pay half when you order, half when they are ready to be shipped. If you are building, they could be a great option! Ours came last week. I'm very happy with the quality but will (hopefully) be even happier when they are installed in a couple of weeks! We should be receiving our roller blinds from blindsonline this week as well.
