That is super exciting RJ_Mcgray! Get ready to pop the champas!
We had a meeting with our builder last night. He will finalise the quote, before issuing the contract. I had the chance to ask heaps of qs and am getting excited. We wont look for a rental for a few months yet, as we are planning to start the build in March. When we started down the path of a first floor addition, we weren't expecting to move out. It certainly puts more pressure on the budget, but as we are basically rebuilding/ reconfiguring the whole house it is unavoidable. Its a bit too early to do very much but I am going to start some mood boards to determine colours/ style that we like to make the decisions later a bit easier.
