Like everyone else I've been lurking other threads for a while now - I've been waiting to get out of the admin stage before making a thread and boy did that take a long time!
My husband and I put down a deposit on a block in December, in Providence, South Ripley. Its a beautiful petite 424m2 park front block. I has to be a double storey house as per the estate covenant, which we have had custom drawn up for us.
We are building a 4 Bed, 2.5 Bath & 2 Garage house.
It took ages for everything to be approved, about 7.5 weeks in council waiting! It went quickly but not quick enough.
We picked colours on Tuesday and should have a start date next week (fingers crossed)
How it sits on the block
After living with roommates for most of our married lives, to moving into a TINY 2bed house I AM SO EXCITED to see this thing come to life!
Anyone else on here building in Ripley? I could only find one thread when I searched but it wasnt complete.
