Hi Everyone my name is Daniel
My wife and I have already started our building journey and have been scrolling these forums for a while looking for inspiration and advice
This is my first post though
Our Story begins in January of this year 2017 we decided we would knock down and rebuild on the current block we live in.
Many weeks of searching online at builders plans we decided on 'The Grand' by Fairmont Homes
We signed our contract in february and asked for an extension on the norm 5 month contract to 7 months which they accepted.
We made a few design changes to the plans to suit our needs and got the final plans drafted and approved by april and then they were sent off to council.
Fast forward to July and we finally get planning approval from council with a list of conditions we need to meet.
All these things added up to a good amount of extra money we needed to now find which we were unaware of.
After signing off on the conditions we only waited another 4 weeks to get our building approval from council which came through earlier this week.
Then we put in council demolition approval and are still waiting for that bit of paper work to come through and also waiting for SA Power to come and disconnect the power from the house.
Once we have that we can commence the demo process so Fairmont can come in and start their thing.
We have had 2 of the 4 selections processes done already and the other 2 will be completed by this coming friday at our Final Builders interview
Everything has progressed slowly but it has been very methodical but everything really ramped up since about 4 weeks ago its getting very exciting now.
Ive done a very brief intro here but I cant really remember every little detail up to this point but I will post some pics of house design and our selections once i figure out how to upload them, might be today might be next week but it will happen.
I decided to start this thread because I was trying to find kitchen designs and bathroom designs like what we have selected and cant seem to find many online pics that are anything like our design choices ( could be a bad thing lol )
So I thought I would help people out in the future by putting it up for all to see
Thanks for reading
