Forrester in Mernda

Our project in Mernda with Burbank

Settlement done, bins delivered

The final inspection went well and the all the areas we wanted touched up had been done.

We had to go to Altona to pay the final invoice and pick up the keys.

Meanwhile our council has already delivered the rubbish bins. That’s been quick considering I had send the email on Monday morning.

The first job to be done post construction is curtains and these have been booked for tomorrow. The remaining fence will be done next week and before the school holidays start.

Here are the latest pictures:

Occupancy certificate issued, letterbox installed

Not much happening at the moment as we wait for the handover but we got our occupancy certificate last week. The bank needs this in order to process the final payment.

We also managed to organise the Certificate of Insurance with our building and contents insurer. Our bank also needs this certificate.

At the site itself, we installed the letterbox. Our council needs the house number to be clearly marked either on the house itself or the letterbox before delivering the bins. We decided the letterbox was the better option and hence installed it – our first job.

Here are some of the latest photos:
