I have been absolutely stalking this forum since starting our whole build process early last year! A huge thankyou to everyone as we would have been much more lost and unprepared if not for all of you and especially the 'things we forgot' thread! We have been the proud owners of our very own sandpit and invisible house for what feels like foreverrrr now so I am SO excited to finally have something to post about and share with you all - yay!
We started the process in March 2013 with HomeGroupWA and had Settlement of our block in the Piara Central Estate on 1st July 2013...it has been a looong journey to get us to where we are today that's for sure!
My other half and our sandpit last July.
Our Sales Rep was so fantastic and we had a lot of flexibility in our ability to re-design our house exactly how we want it, which was necessary as our block is very narrow and quite long, so lots of cutting and pasting! Here is the modified version of the Loano Contempo we ended up with.
As our block is so narrow we had to make use of the zero lot garage wall. But we did manage to squeeze pool in there which I am very excited about! Who needs a backyard when you have a pool right?
After completing our plans we have found that the paperwork side of everything has taken an extremely long time and we had quite a few hiccups after our pre-start meeting which was on 16th August 2013, including a whopping pre-start bill initially - we nearly died when we saw the figures!
Since then our 6m x 3m pool has been installed in the 'backyard', looking very lonely in amongst all the other houses around
And finally after being told we were due for Earthworks to commence on Thursday 16th Jan at the end of last year but having no confirmation I headed down to the block today to find this lovely surprise
We are so excited for the build to start and see all our hard work and planning come to life! Will post details of our colour selections and pre-start changes soon!
