We’ve Moved In To Our New House!

Wow, has it really been that long already?… It’s now July 24th 2010, and Carly, Mitchell and I took final hand over of our new Format Homes built house way back in February 3rd 2010. We are so happy to be in our new house. It’s amazing when something that you both design, plan, follow through construction and all the dramas, finally comes together.

The building process was relatively painless, there were certainly a few quirks along the way but that was always to be expected where we built – a semi-rural property. The finish of the house is excellent and despite the fact there’s lots of mud around, we’ve now converted our house to a home. Below are some of the shots of the finished house. Having never built a house before this was certainly a learning experience. One that certainly had it’s ups and downs. I’ve got a list of tips for anyone building a house, especially one with Format Homes – though that will be a later article.

    Format = STRESS we chose grey mortar and got grey which doesn’t match any other part of the house. Format will do nothing. apparently its natural variation and our expectation of grey mortaR was UNREALISTIC Also 70 chipped bricks 40 holes in mortar, roof sheet ends stick out above gutter and large lounge window is still crooked after3 goes at fixing it . Recent build down road went up with none of these issues BEWARE
