Who ever thought I would be excited about a wire hanging down from our house? We placed an order for abolishment of power and gas over a week ago and they can take up to 20 days to do the job, after 7 working days the job has been done :) The wire was connected to the street electricity pole and it needs to be removed before a house can be demolished. That means the demolition team can come in and knock down the house. The demo team were there today attending to any asbestos. Not a nice thought, but in a 40 year old house there needs to be precautions. After living in the house for 6 years it is sad to say goodbye. Lots of memories in that house.
We also signed our contracts with M on Tuesday 10th. Our sales rep went through all the documents with us thoroughly. A few minor changes were required but not much when you get to this stage. Once the block is clear and level they will do a second soil test and survey. They will need our documents from the bank (with our increased mortgage details), our septic tank permit and a few other items. Then M can apply for a building permit and the build can start. Who ever thought there would be soooo many forms, paperwork, permits, requirements and rules when building a house? And of course each form, permit or test costs a few hundred or thousand dollars. I will be at work on Thursday so I won't get to see the demo in progress. Hopefully the kids will get a chance to see some of the action before going to school as the demo team are starting at 7.30am...
