Well, after a three-month delay, we are just about to commence the ‘build’ stage of our new home odyssey. The bank baulked at the total cost of the build so we had to made a ‘contribution’ (meaning top up the loan).
Fortunately we had already sold a property and it settled last week. With our contribution now made, the builders are just waiting for the green flag from the bank and we will be underway. First up, demolition of the old house, which should happen in the first week of Feb, pending weather and demolition crew availability.
Hopefully we’ll in by June. Fingers crossed?
