365 Days!!!

And so it goes that after three hundred sixty five days we thought, and hoped, and prayed, and begged, and wondered, and imagined, and expected ... that we would have moved in to our new home by now.

Not to be.

Not yet.  But we're getting there.

  1. What was your build time in the contract? They must be getting close to penalty fees...

    You've had PCI so hopefully you'll get the handover any day now... :(

    1. Our contracted build time was above 400 days, just not sure when did the clock start ticking - signing of contract? deposit date? site start? But we're getting really close to it.
      Metricon is just going thru our independent inspector's report now and slowly working thru fixing most of it, like scratched glasses (x4), misplaced light switch in the roof cavity, etc. Hopefully, we'll get a final handover date once all the issues have been fixed. We'll see.
      Watch this space.
      Also, congratulations on your move to your new home. Exciting, isn't it.
