Only 50 Days To Go

From August 8th 2016 (when we first found the plot that meanwhile belongs to us) to April 19th 2017 (the planned final handover date) is in total, 255 days.

Just over 200 of these are now behind us, and there are just 50 days more to wait.

Essentially the construction of the house is already completed, and the work that remains to be done is more or less the same as ‘redecorating' would be – painting, tiling and bathroom suite installation.

Of course, there are a few other things still to be done as well:

  • The electrician still has to connect up all the wires and the electricity, water and telephone connections are still to be done.
  • The solar inverter and battery (finally we have confirmation that we are getting the Tesla Powerwall) are still to be installed.
  • The stairways and interior doors have to be installed.
  • The kitchen has to be installed (immediately after the final handover from Viebrockhaus).

When walking around the house now, it is looking almost finished and it definitely feels like we are on the home straight…
