    Well, sort of.

    https://www.jelson.co.uk/hallamfields/siteplan.htm

    This is the site plan, and we are getting either plot 42, 43 or 44. If you click on it, you can see the house plan. I have requested plot 42 as the garden is bigger and there is a drive next to it. 43 and 44 have 1 parking space each at the bottom of the gardens and we have 2 cars which would fit on the drive. Also, it is on an incline and 43 and 44 have very sloping gardens with paves steps up the middle. I mentioned to the housing woman that I would be scared to let a toddler out in the garden with these steps, and she agreed. Basically, she has no preference which family goes into which house, and I am the only one who has asked for a specific plot, so fingers crossed, it's ours.[-o< You don't get if you don't ask!

    They should be getting the keys at the end of this month, so hopefully we'll be moving in the first or second week of April - just right for the Easter school holidays!! :happydance:

    Im confused, did Imiss a post, I remember you saying a little while ago how you had got a house and you were going to be living next door to someone you knew, and you took some pics of you looking round one that was just being finished?

    Is this the same one, or did that fall through?

    Sorry, yes, this is the same one. We were initially told it would be ready mid-March, but, although the house is ready, the road is still mud! The site plan shows what it is all going to look like, not what it looks like at the minute. The road we will be living on only goes as far as plot 41 at the minute, then it's mud again! And the houses at the back (37 and 38 ) are just having their roofs put on.

    I'll try and get some current pics.

    We got plot 42!!!!! :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

    My cheekiness paid off!!! :happydance:

    I rang the housing assocation at lunch, and she told me that the offer letters had just had stamps put on them and were waiting to go in the post! So I asked her which house we had, and she said it was the one I asked for!!! :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

    (I'm a little bit happy - can you tell???!!!)

    More pics I'm afraid!! :blush:

    The front again - this is Ruth (my next-door neighbour!) running up to test her doorbell - and it works!!

    https://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b101/famanda33/House/DSC00023.jpg

    This is Stu stood in our garden with Ruth being nosey into the detached house next door!! :rofl: You can see how much wider our garden is because we have the driveway.

    https://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b101/famanda33/House/DSC00022.jpg

    And this is the other view of the garden - with the shed!!

    https://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b101/famanda33/House/DSC00021.jpg

    You can see the slope in the ground here. but Stu's going to sort something out when he turfs it so Charlie can gave a swing up. There are some good things about marrying a greenkeeper!!!

    I've also managed to measure all the windows and have ordered blinds for the ones that need them - £240 !! Oops! :blush:

    I received the letter on Saturday and we now have a real address, not a plot number, and a postcode!! :rofl:

    But........ BT can't fit the line till the 18th, and then it's costing us £124.99! And then it may take 20 working days for after that for broadband! :shock:

    So I may not be around for a while.....

    We can't get Sky Broadband yet.:evil: I'm already registered for them to let me know when they activate the exchange, and then I'll switch.

    We're now not moving for another week!! It's never easy is it?

    The carpet can't be fitted until the 12th. Not really a problem, but I don't want to move in until all the carpets are fitted. We get the keys at 12.30, the carpet fitter is coming at 1.30 to measure, and then they'll fit them on the 12th. That gives us a whole week to get painted, all kitchen appliances in so they don't dribble on the new carpets, and order all the new furniture we need. We spend £2k yesterday! :shock: Off to B & Q once the rest of the sleepy-heads get up (oh, and it opens!!) to get paint and everything.
