Progress on our new house

We are buying a new build house, we start this before we knew we were now going to Baku, but we are going ahead with it as we want a UK base to come back to during holiday’s and so that it is all ready when we do return.

We got to have a look round a couple of weeks ago and everything is look good.

No idea why we didn’t take any photos from the downstairs!

As you can see all the rooms have been plastered and the lights have been fitted – they won’t be dangling down but recessed into the ceiling. Every room has these LED lights, which are very energy efficient but not sure how they will look and feel, how much atmosphere will they give?

Downstairs has underfloor heating while the upper two floors have radiators and they are really small. I’m guessing that this is because the house is very energy efficient and quite air-tight, we have a mechanical ventilation system as there are no vents on the windows.

Whilst everything is looking great there has been a delay in getting all the services installed, which is going to delay us being able to move in! The new date is the end of June. Which is very close to our move date to Baku, which is very frustrating as I really wanted to be able to settle into our new home before we had to head off travelling again. But, that’s what happens when you buy a new build and I’m sure we will still get to enjoy this new house soon.
