    Hi soo, I am just wondering like ill put in the sentence, and just want to know whether me putting in as it came of age is so wrong, I mean i think it is, but yeah the main phrase that i think is wrong "and as it came of completion" I use to have it "when the time came" but apparently I wasnt allowed, that so yeah can anybody help?

    As several months passed by, and we moved into 2005, I eagerly awaited the finishing touches on the renovations being conducted at my original home, and as it came of completion, I walked down from the rental with Holly, all while both of us being excited at the prospect of seeing out the new home once and for all.

    "came to completion" should fix it.
