Backyard landscaping has started

We have finally started our back yard, pool went in last week. 
We are busy organising glass panels for the fence, pavers, water feature and gardens. 
Can't wait to watch how it all comes together. 
We have also been working on the formal lounge room. Bought some furniture, one room is now nearly complete!!

It's been awhile

Some pics of our little bits and pieces 
House has a long way to go to be finished, but we like the way it is going. Just wish it was faster, savings and findings have been slow. 
Small update

Landscape has started!

We started our garden over the Easter break. Having our plants and rocks bought and placed was exciting. We have had dirt for a couple of months, so it's lovely to see some colour!

Grass will come shortly, first however, we have bought a piano for 99c off eBay and will be experimenting with it to make a water feature out of it. This will sit in the front yard with a garden.
Hoping it all goes to plan :) here is a few pics of our progress!
Also a pic of the piano and a pic of our idea. Any tips? Feel free please :)

At last

We had our drive way poured last week, and finally have bins!!! Never thought we would be so excited about bins, but alas we are!
We love the driveway, not entirely happy with stepping stones and garden so will be getting this fixed.
On a different note, nearly 5 weeks ago we emailed the fairmont about many issues needing to be fixed or changed.
We called last week to ask and to add bathroom fan to list. So far we have not heard from them or had anyone fix anything on that list.
Quite disappointing, 90 days will be up and they've not returned call or organised these!

It's 2013 already?!?

Happy new year to everyone

Can't believe how much time flies, two years ago we drive into our suburb and fell in love. We can finally call it home, and its a wonderful feeling to lay our heads to rest here.

We have had very slow progress on the block, due to some unexpected medical expenses eating away at our finances.
However, we are slowly making our way back.
Drive way has been ready and waiting, for this rain to go away! We nearly have a pool out front!
We have given our list of things needing fixing to fairlont two weeks ago. Just waiting on these to be fixed, one item has so far.
Here are some pics, as I said though, we haven't done much, but look forward to once we pay off this credit card!!
Hope to see some exciting news from fellow builders in the coming months :)

A week already!!!

A week ago we were handed our keys, it's gone so fast and we have unpacked quite a bit. Still way too much to go!
Here's some pics, we don't own much to fill it up yet, we were in a one bedroom before so space was limited.
We will be slowly making our house our home.

We have our keys

Best wedding anniversary ever!
Bank paid and fairmont delivered the keys.
They have been so great in working around us and the banks, easing such a stressful time.
We are so excited, and have no idea where to start!
