Oh wow. Is it smack dab in the middle of the day?

They did this to me too and when I got to the PDI, I didn't have a kitchen counter or sink so just beware! A PDI should be a completed product.

Also the units are supposed to come with the toilet paper/towel holders. They shouldn't be charging extra for that. If anything, just point out that it's missing on your PDI or your one month Tarion followup
It came with towel rods in the linen cupboard or coat cupboard. They just don't put it up in case you want it somewhere else. Paper towel holders I had to buy.

I would say it was not worth the wait. I love it now that I'm in it but I wish I didn't buy it and could have been in a new house 3 years earlier to be perfectly honest.

Has anyone moved into the Garden towns? How was the PDI? I'm scheduled to move end of October. Can anyone post some pics of the Kitchen island, I'd like to see how it looks with the redesigned breakfast bar.

My PDI is on Tuesday taking posesssion next Monday. Iíve gone in on my own and Iíve seen the counter. In my opinion itís a waste of space and I canít believe they wouldnít have given us cabinetry for storage as the kitchen is already very small.

I have a photo but itís not letting me attach it. Iíll see if I can do it in a spwerTe post.

Default Bell Fibe TV

For people that have moved in... are your internet routers also in your garage?? I got the Bell gigabit promo and when Bell came to install, the installation tech thought it was a really silly location for the fibe cable, but thatís where he set up the router. Now we barley get a wifi connection on the 3rd floor even with a wifi extender. Is anything set up differently in your homes or do you have any suggestions??

The box where the cables and everything that bring the internet to the house is in the garage, but my router is plugged in upstairs. I don't know for sure, but I thought you can pretty much put the router where ever you want, as long as there is the wall plug and ethernet cable plug. I would try moving it...

There seemed to be a spot for the WIFI modem in the walk-in closet (with a hide-away panel). This is where the Bell tech installed it.
