We have started!!

I know I have been so slack with the blog but nothing was happening and then last week we finally had progress. Our block has been cut and a site fence installed. Last night when we went to visit we could even see the outline of the house !! Was so exciting to see some progress. Slab should be down by the end of the week so my fingers are crossed for fine weather !!

Welcome to our blog !!!

As this is my first post I thought I would give you a bit of background. Hubby and I owned a townhouse and felt it was time to upgrade to something a bit bigger (at least something with more that a single garage) so we started looking around. After looking a prices of established houses and the cost of buying land and then being able to build exactly what we wanted we decided to purchase a block of land at The Ponds in September 2009. After lots of research we finally decided on a house plan, we are building a Cambridge by Eden Brae. Our block of land is a bit different as our driveway is at the back and not the front so we picked the Cambridge 29 but have changed the design to make the single garage a theatre room and added a 4 car garage to the other side of the house. It is very hard to picture without the plans so once I work out how to put up details of the plans I will.

So we have signed our contract with EB, and just received our BASIX sign off so hopefully our plans will be in council soon and then building can start !!!

Anyway, will try and keep this updated - happy reading !!
