Oh my…furniture has arrived!

Since purchasing our land in 2014 we have been all over Melbourne looking for the perfect furniture. It was only in the last couple of months we stumbled across HOME CONCEPTS in then Prahran and now relocated to Windsor.

They are a boutique establishment with over 20 years of experience in the business. The thing I like most about them is that their furniture is Australian made and you can customise the furniture to your dimension and like. We got our couch to be more firm and dining table a bit longer.

If you are looking for a personalised touch to your home pop in and see Dean, Leanne and Eliza. You will love their friendly vibe and exceptional customer service. Plus their prices are very reasonable for the quality and 10 year warranty.



Security for your home

One of the key things to organise when moving into a new estate is getting your security sorted. There have been a few day break-ins in our area and since then a community set up has taken place on FB.

While researching I found that the following had good services:

  1. Signal Security Services
    – Good if you do not have access to the internet in your estate
    Signal Security Pty. Limited
    Level 3, 126 Russell Street
    Melbourne, VIC 3000 Australia
    T   1300 73 83 93
  2. RACV Emergency Home Assist
    If you have access to the internet this it the most reasonable setup

  3. Ring

Moving day!

Moving day arrived sooner than excepted, Thursday 17 November. We went with Melbourne Metro Movers and could not have been happier with their service. We had two lovely Brazilian guys called Enrico and Gus. It was a hot day and being on the third floor with no access to lifts was a tough day. Six hours later we had finally arrived into our brand new home.

The days after…

The next day we had our hot water and appliances installed it was a 7.30am start to the day.

In the days following we had our pendant lights installed by hubby’s good mate from work. Our appliances were delivered by my in-laws and new TV from my parents.


We got our keys!

On the 8 November, we got our keys! It was an exciting start to the day… we finally met our lovely client liaison Selen! I believe that the reason we had a stress free build was because she has such a good sense of communication and follow-ups.

We received four golden keys, welcome pack, important documents and our special mop for our engineered floorboards.

Such exciting times ahead.

Couple days later we got our curtains installed which was great! Dollar Curtains and Blinds Epping did an amazing job. Our bedroom plantation shutters are still left to be installed.
