House Update..... The plans are in.............

Hi all
Just about every day someone asks me how we are going and have we started building our new home yet.  I have been waiting to get something to tell you before I do an update.  Sigh.... things are going slooooooowly.

The plans have finally been submitted.  It took longer than we hoped as we back on to the bush and are in the FLAME ZONE so that means lots of extra reports are required.  We also have a Sydney Water thing-a-my (technical term) in the back of our property so that required its own report.   Now that the plans are in we are told that approval will take 10-12 weeks..... yes, you read that right.... 

That means that if it takes ten weeks plans could be approved by New Year's Eve and if twelve weeks then that makes it 13 January.    Such a long time.

Once planning is approved we can start building.... and that will take months!  I am told we can expect to be in our own home again by October/November next year. 

Definitely not what I wanted to hear but it is what it is and there is no point complaining about it. 

Hopefully we can have Christmas in our own home next year! 

Thanks as always for all your messages and gestures of support.  I remain blown away and eternally grateful for all the love and support that has come our way and continues to come our way. 

It is much appreciated and will never be forgotten.

Till next time..... check your smoke alarms!! (you should have PHOTO ELECTRIC SMOKE ALARMS) and update your insurance policies..

Cheers and a big hug

  1. Good news indeed. They must go into great detail to take that long to approve, I wish you all the best.
