I've been busy reading lots of other threads, so I thought it was now time to start my own.
It all started out when we were looking to buy established houses and couldn't find anything with a decent backyard size for the kids. One day we saw an old place that was on a decent size block on a nice street and it just felt right, so jumped in and purchased it.
We plan to build a two storey family home with room for the kids to grow.
Here is a rough timeline so far
2013 - Bought an old run down house with the intent of knocking it down and rebuilding
Jan/Feb 2014 - Demolished the existing house
Jan 2014 - Development Plan Consent received from the council
Feb 2014 - Building Rules Consent granted
Feb 2014 - Development Approval granted
And that brings us to today, where its not long to go until the slab will be poured.
