We're still waiting for State Insurance's response to our request for a review of their rebuild costings. The assessors visited the River Road house several weeks ago, and apparently the review is now with their quantity surveyors. When their reply eventually arrives, we'll be able to proceed with the sale of our land to the Government and the payout by State. Then we can pay off the bridging loan from the bank, and free up several hundred dollars each week in interest.
Next week our furniture should be ready to collect and move into the Alpine View Lane house, and the wiring changes should be finished. There are fittings to attach in the bathrooms (probably by a tradesman, I don't want to carry the blame for any mistakes there), carpet in our bedroom, and we're in business.
