41st Week Post-Handover

Since handover, we have been driving around Melbourne looking for tiles. I can’t believe how hard it is to choose tiles. We are looking for a 600 x 600 semi-polished Charcoal/Dark Grey porcelain tile. At the moment the house has all these samples of different colour tiles scattered around the house and we are constantly moving tiles around to see what they look like in different rooms and shades.

We also have done some back breaking work with trying to level the ground outside (human bobcat). The two sides of the house are done just the back and front left to do. Having wet rainy weather doesn’t help as it makes it twice as hard.

We also had a few quotes to fence off our block and we’ve had quotes ranging from $64m to $47m. It feels logical to go for the cheapest but I want a good fence that will last, so in the coming days I’ll be driving around the suburbs of Melbourne checking out the completed jobs of the fence companies before we choose. Hopefully within the coming weeks we can fence off our block.
