Any updates on your build? Or are you experiencing similar problems with council?

How did your tender go? Don't be nervous. but bring a load of patience along. Council can delay things considerably.

Hey folks,
It’s been a while since I’ve updated this thread, so here’s a brief rundown on what’s been happening. Following our November submission to council, a few changes –…

How much is your plunge pool setting you back? The other half and I have been casually discussing the possibility.

I am hoping council doesn't take their sweet time in approving our plans. I'm not loving our chances this close to Christmas though.

Hey everyone,
Our tender is here! No nasty surprises really, besides $16500 worth of retaining walls, due to a deceptive contour fall. We’ve made a few additions to the standard…

Thankfully, it made perfect sense to the real estate agent and my conveyancer/solicitor. The REA has accepted culpability for the confusion and everything has been worked out. We’ve ended up…
