Been a stalker of this excellent site for almost a year now, so thought I would start our thread now we have some movement at the station. Had a false start with one builder, but luckily we got out before they could make it any worse.
We are building a customised version of the Dream Verona with Dreamstart. We have a 300sqm (10x30) block in Calleya Estate, Treeby (formerly Banjup).
Will post a picture of a final plan shortly, but looking forward to documenting our construction journey
Building permit was issued on 10 November 2016, so we are expecting siteworks to begin next week. I might actually cry with happiness when I see our tap installed.
Always happy for input and advice from everyone!
Enjoy your day.
