Permit Approved

Well we now officially have the green light from the Council. 

Our building permit came through a few days ago which is very exciting.

We have also had the Final Construction drawing come through. There were a few discrepancies the most surprising was having a window left out of the main bathroom.  Now you see it now you don't!

In our final contract there was a window but then in our Final Construction drawings there is no window!  It is not a huge drama, however I just found it weird that our paperwork goes through a QA department before being sent to drafting so this should have been picked up!  It also got us scared about what we might have missed!  So we are currently working through the drawings - with a fine tooth comb!

No more news on the property - just that we have ordered our second soil test so hopefully we should start building in about 5 weeks!

I will be in touch with more news soon.

Meanwhile below are some pictures of the Metricon Monarch Display Home.  Although we are not building this home in particular, the Whittaker does have the same floor plan. I like to remind myself from time to time that all the hard yards we put in now will pay off later...

Our home will be fairly similar with the same window configuration in the dining and family room. 








  1. Congrats Deane, that's a very big move. We have our frames now. I have started my own blog

  2. Hi, thanks for your comment. Will definitely check your blog. We hope to start building by the end of this month...still working through the construction drawings. Very stressful!
