Hi KJ, we're pretty much same as you, been in council 3 weeks and waiting! I thought when we started this in Aug we'd be in by this Xmas but I can see that slipping away! I guess it is what it is. One day we'll all be hanging out in our new homes having a wine and chatting about what a journey building was and thank god it's done, lol. Great news Dream home I've finally worked out which block you are due to Red pegs, lol. MH are generally quick with the build just not so much with getting there so hope it goes quick for you!

Hi Bluestone 65. Yes unfortunately you have to have your building plans put through council or CDC (strict initial guidelines for CDC, private certification which was supposed to put a rocket up councils behind for processing time - NOT!) before you can turn the dirt to commence building. The other problem of course has been waiting for rego. Interestingly we were able to get a form signed by Mulpha through our legals so that our plans could go to council in their name before settlement so technically we should be 2 weeks in council already by settlement - so now I have been advised our plans went back to council 5th March. Good luck with it all whatever you are doing. This is out 3rd build project and don't remember it ever being such a long drawn out process

Congrats to all the bluestoners. That's awesome news.
I hope all the trouble makers go elsewhere. Why do they feel the need to damage. Can't kids just hang out and chat these days.
I can't wait to see all your builds start! Some of you are so close.
Ours is going well. About a month to go. I'm son in love with my house. We just finished tiles. Painting has just started.

Congrats on rego Bluestone future residents! We are on Binyang close to the glenmore ridge side of MR. We received all our contract documents yesterday and are set to start construction on Tuesday!! Process has been a little drawn out but I think doing approvals etc over Christmas resulted in delays. No major dramas except a tree where we want our driveway! Calling MR today to check if we can move it. Can't understand why they put in driveway positions and trees before people design their houses?!

Woot, congratulations rochelleandcraig.
I think the trees caused some others access troubles earlier in the thread. I remember people talking about the trees being damaged. I think the location of our driveway is about where we want it, it's on the correct side, at least. Good luck getting the tree moved!

Yeah ours have to be moved as well. Rochelle & Craig, how exciting Ours should start by Friday. I just did a drive-by and the Bluestone fence was being removed, so you can all get in now!

I'm a bit obsessed. My little one has been sick so I was off work today. I happened to drive past the block four times today - on the way to the Doc, on the way home from the Doc, on the way to pick my eldest up, on the way home from picking him up. Good for neighbourhood watch I guess but the builders are going to think I am a stalker during the school hols... Lol.

Hi all. Has anyone noticed that the hill at the top of Darug near the fence line is gone! I was there on Sunday it was still there and then on our Tuesday visit it was gone!! It looks great.
Final sign off of plans and contract today. Next step red pegs and slab!
