Waiting for contracts

We received our updated drawings on Monday. Just had some minor adjustments. We extended the length of our Kitchen island bench by 500mm. Also added a cavity sliding door in between the main bedroom and WIR (towards ensuite). We moved some of the front windows to the left by 200mm to get a bit more symmetry. I will upload the new plans soon.

We expect to receive our contract later this week or early next week. We settle on our house in Toongabbie on 3rd June - and are hoping to have all the contracts signed before then so that we can submit to council soon after we settle.

Nothing else to report!

Ok, here are some of the prelim drawings on the floor plan and front/side elevations. Still some minor changes need to be done (adding a sliding door from master to WIR, changing the linen press doors sizing to 3x820 rather than 4x620 and few other minor things). I hope the pictures turn out :)

The Blog Begins

Gday all!!

This is my first attempt at creating a blog. I hope I am doing it right....

Anyway - DW and I are currently progressing with Wisdom to build our lovely new home at West Pennant Hills. We started off with the Manhattan 42 floor plan - but this soon expanded to be a Manhattan 51! I will upload some floor plans a.s.a.p.

We accepted our tender about 3 weeks ago. The preliminary architect drawings have been completed - and we will hopefully be signing and submitting to council in about 4 weeks (when we settle on our current house). Unfortunately, we had to sell our beloved home at Toongabbie to fund the build. Even more unfortunate is that fact that we have to rent for the next 12 months :(
