Here we go again, our Eden Brae Madison is SOLD, now for the next building journey.....

Since early last year I have had the itch to sell and go again, given the recent boost in the local market finally we took the plunge in May and after a couple of open homes, we got a great offer.

Here are the photos from our online advertising of the house, they came out great and I started to doubt my decision to leave my beautiful house!!

So now the hunt is on for a new patch of dirt to start again, also the hunt for the rental property too! We are thinking with the prices around here, we have to look towards Schofields to get bang for our buck though! Hubby not so keen on going over that way as it's slowly being developed unlike the major development like The Ponds (Landcom) and The Avenue (Mirvac) the Schofields area is going bit by bit under many developers. Any suggestions on where we should head next??

Loving our new light...

We finally have got around to installing a feature light to our stairs, loving the one we chose....


I also bought these three framed prints on ebay ($40 including postage) they came from Melbourne wrapped in the thinest piece of bubble wrap and some paper, I can't believe they didn't get damaged! They add a nice bit of colour to the walls.

We still have a few items being finished as part of our maintenance, yes it's been dragging on for months!, but credit to Eden Brae, they are following up on everything we ask, given that our SS left them shortly after our home was completed!!

Finally some sunshine! Photo update...

Finally some sun has been shining and I could get out to take a photo of our completed landscaping and walls.

We met our next door neighbours (who very kindly came around to pay us their portion of the fence before it even went up!) they are starting their build soon with Allcastle Homes and are a very nice couple with a toddler. It's nice to see lots of couples who built around us are of similar age to us with kids either a little older or younger than ours. I can see all our kids forming neighbourhood friendships in the coming years!

Blinds have been installed (missing the ones that side our alfresco area though!) and we are just waiting on our gates to arrive this week now.

Front stairs are tiled, we are finally getting there.....

We are starting to get there, it's been just over a month since we moved in all of the landscaping is done, the fencing begins next week, waiting to confirm our blinds installation, our SS was back this week to make a list of things to follow up (including lots of external paintwork that wasn't done before handover!) and our front stairs were tiled yesterday.

Here is a photo of the front entry stairs, they still need to be cleaned, but we picked a sandstone looking tile to match the sandstone capping we have, the tiler did a great job! Photos of the inside to come after our blinds are installed....

It's ours, let the mayhem of moving at Christmas time begin!

What a great Christmas present for us, to be moving into our new home, there are still a few things to be done but given the last minute rush to get it finished, I am surprised we had handover before Christmas.

Here are some photos taken today:

Landscapers laid some grass for us today, but the rain delayed the backyard being laid.

Front stairs and letterbox....

The brickies were in today to do the front stairs and our letterbox, we are still holding our breath for the occupancy certificate, without this our lender won't release the final payment. We also need this stupid rain to go away, so the external painting can be completed tomorrow!

Balcony columns.......

Here is a photo of the balcony columns that were installed on Monday, it looks so much better than before!

Still waiting for the site to be cleaned up, the front stairs to be installed and the external painting to happen, but today the inspection by Local Group was carried out, the left hand side retaining wall including stairs was pretty much completed and the painters were back to fix up the stairs.
