May as well update while I'm here. Applied for the dispensation on the 14th but still waiting to hear back from the council. They mention on their website it can…

First delay and we haven't even started at site yet lol. My CSA forgot about the dispensation we need to apply for, for our tall garage, and she's gone off…

Yeah Inspired/Como are probably still using the same engineers as Arden. I'm ok with it, we're 5149 so have 2m of slope, and they need to make sure the house…

Site costs are back, a small amount over budget but as we are now essentially having 2 split levels across the entire house and garage it's reasonable and not unexpected.…

How frustrating. I hope they fix it soon. Your facade is looking nice though.

Yes still happy with our choice. Our land settlement was intense and it was a bit dissappointing that we had to change from a single level to a split. The…

FYI still no site costs but Como did ask us to prove finance .. bit cheeky when we dont actually have a contract cost.

So jealous of your site start, we will be driving by this morning on the way to grocery shopping so will check your progress out. Hopefully your ss contacts you…

Still no site costs, only just got drawings back last night as Como have had sick leave in the draftsperson team.
