The finish line is ohhh so close!

Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS! You’re so close to getting into your new Smart home. In these final stages there will be a lot of different tradies and suppliers in and out of your home installing all the finishing touches. You need it 100% perfect for the envy party with your family and friends (or housewarming party, as some people call it, whatevs), right?!

 

P.s. if you’re not quite here yet, that’s all good, there’s nothing quite like taking a peek into your future to get the motivation flowing! If the Hollywood Medium can do it, so can you.

What’s happening inside?

Internally, the fixing carpenter will come in and install shelving, doors, and the kitchen and bathroom cabinetry. And for those of you planning to dedicate some of those shelves to house plants … just remember, the death of a house plant says NOTHING about your skills as an adult. Nothing whatsoever!

 

Oh, and plumbing and electrical fixtures will be installed. Plus your internal painting (Pinterest board styling at the ready) will also be done. Phewww, it’s times like this we need to activate our multitasking smarts! Luckily we sharpened those skills up in ‘03 when The OC was on at the same time as Lost. The struggle before Netflix was real.

What about outside?

When it comes to the external works, there’s just as much going on. The garage hardstand will be poured, the termite treatment and external paving will be completed, and the garage door will be installed.

And the extras?

Anything else that you included in your contract – perhaps you opted for floor coverings, window treatments, or air-conditioning (or all three) – will be completed in this stage too.

 

From here, your site manager will contact you to organise a PCI meeting. Don’t forget to bring someone who can record a reaction vid. Because what’s a reveal without a socials op? You need to capture the first time you lay eyes on your shiny new kitchen and bathrooms, don’t you?

Up next? PCI (a fancy acronym for your Grand Tour).
