Finally almost there!! 3 1/2 weeks for us, it seems like we've been waiting forever and now I can't believe how fast it's coming up. I've been sneaking peaks at my house and so far found that they...

Don't worry, everyone gets that. We close February 6 and just picked ours up a couple of days ago. It just says the final purchase price and balance still owed, I don't even think it mentions closing...

I totally agree. We bought in May '07 and were supposed to close in October '08, so we would have had the handyman had we not been delayed. I think I'm going to push for it harder and see if I get...

We had our framewalk last week and we're closing February 6. Our builder told us they would get it done in time, but that he'd be really pushing it through, so I guess 2 months it kind of tight. It...

I asked cc, and Mattamy doesn't offer the handyman for a day anymore. Would've gotten it if we closed on time...oh well.

Yeah, there doesn't seem to be any consistent time frame in which things are done. My sister's on Aquilo in block 15 closing January 7, and she had her framwalk like 2 months ago. Our house was way...

Our upgrades came in at about $21,000 on a house with a base price of $275,000, but we also paid $6000 for the 4-bdrm option, so if you add that on we're at right about 10%. We're also doing hardwood...

I've used a few different grout cleaners, but I find the Mr. Clean magic eraser works best, and is much easier to use. It's a good thing to have around for spot-cleaning too.

I think it would definitely work, and you should do it to define the separate spaces. I would try to coordinate them somehow, probably more in colour than texture.

That was supposed to be my moving day (and also my birthday, and Rob's too so you can get him a case of beer if he manages to close you early). I'm glad someone gets to use it!

I agree with hardwood everywhere, although I think ceramic could work in the kitchen. I was also going to suggest the area rug in the family room, especially if you plan to sell at some point....
