Latest Update

Since my last update, we have completed our electrical plan, signed off on the kitchen, laundry and bathroom plans and also added and finalised a bunch of "extras" we originally decided against during the tender stage. :-) 

We also discovered that we actually have a window in our kitchen behind the stove.  This was pointed out to us by the kitchen people when I questioned why the glass splashback didn't go across the whole wall - duh! This was a Basix/Council requirement so we didn't really have a choice in the matter anyway).  It's right there in the plans but we never noticed it!
The Construction Certificate was also issued a few days ago so we are almost ready to start!

On a sour note, as we are one the last to build in our estate, our block of land has become somewhat of a storage facility and rubbish tip for all the other builders around.  We even have a nice set of tyre tracks from a cement truck which went up the curb a few days ago and then dump its leftover concrete on our land.

We have Council approval!

Wahoo!  We have council approval! (and it only took 21 days from date of lodgement)

We also have Water Board approval already so things should start moving along very quickly now.
