House update

Hi Everyone!

I can’t believe we are nearly half way through September already! Seriously, where is time going?

I thought I’d give you a little update on the house as since my last post about it, we’ve got an estimated completion date! We’ve been told November 5th, which is sooner than planned. Originally we were told end of November/December, I’m not convinced the house will be finished by the date they are saying. It seems like too much needs doing in such a small space of time.

This photo is from just over a week ago when we first visited after coming back from Majorca! You can also see the garden we have which goes to the point, which I haven’t done a very good job of taking the photo of! We have been told some of those crazy trees are being taken out and those which don’t, will be chopped back.

We do now kind of have a roof, it’s just waiting to be tiled, so once that’s done they can get the windows in. 7 weeks still doesn’t seem long enough to me though to get that plus everything on the inside done!

On the plus side, if that is when we move in, at least that’s longer to get settled in ready for Christmas! I’m so excited, we already have a Christmas tree which has kindly been given to us, haha! We just need to find some Christmas tree inspo for decorating it all pretty.

We had a trip to Ikea at the weekend to try get some more bits, as we are trying to avoid having to buy it all at the end. We got quite a lot but need another trip as some of the things which were meant to be in stock weren’t! Typical. I don’t mind though, I quite like Ikea haha.

Redrow have just opened the showhome on the development too! We were so excited to go haha, partly because we were able to see our house from the back window, but also because it was part of the Regent collection which our house was going to be. I really loved the kitchen, it was grey cabinets with a white granite worktop! It wasn’t the same layout as our home but it’s similar, so was good to be able to visualise it a bit more compared to the bigger showhomes on the development next door. I’ve put some of the pictures on here because I love a good showhome snoop!

Other than that, it’s trying to pick a sofa! We have found one we like but don’t want to order it as knowing our luck it won’t fit, so hoping we can get into the house very soon to measure up.

More updates to follow!
