Still waiting for council........

We are still waiting for council approval for the house DA, it was expected to take between 6 to 8 weeks (we are at week 7). The latest update from last week (and the week before that) was the council assessor had looked at our plans and apparently it all looks OK but she just needs to check one fingers crossed approval will be soon and then we can move onto the next stage, construction.

At least the pool plans have been approved, so hopefully we will hear from the construction team soon to advise on a date for the digout! Here is a photo of the proposed pool.

While plans have been in council we have in the meantime been busy selecting everything. We finally decided on our kitchen colours after seeing a display home kitchen in the colours we liked (white and a very light moss grey). Much easier to decide once you see it in a kitchen, colour looks different in the kitchen compared to a small sample. We like these colours much better than the first one's we chose, so glad we changed our minds, even though the process was initially causing much angst and confusion.

We also completed electricals and carpet and tiles........all the decisions are now made (thankfully!). As one does during the selection process we have completed quite a few "upgrades" and consequently over budget for each one,  however I am sure it will be worth it in the end.
