Well, who would have thought that when we started this little project it would have taken so long.

I am just looking forward to the end result and hopefully I will be adding a new post in a few weeks with pictures of our block with something other than grass on it.

We have just jumped our final hurdle. OUt plans were approved, but for some reason Council would not allow us to use any fill and only Deep edge beams. Still not sure to this day as to why, but again, after fighting, and debating over their decision and again having to go over peoples heads, I had it fixed and we are now allow to use fill across the back of our house and only 1/2 beams up ths side.

It's lost us another 6 weeks, but was the difference between actually building or not, and I can tell you we came very close to throwing in the towel.

Anyway, last variation is all signed off and we are just waiting on the CC, which i would hope will be done by the end of this week.

Kurmond as far as I am concerned have really done everything they can to support us, and hopefully they will pull through for us again, once we start and get our home built quickly.

I really want to be in before Christmas, but being on the eve of June, I am not sure, but lets watch this space shall we.

Got all our final kitchen plans done so will post all the bits and pieces tomorrow.
