The moment we have been waiting for has finally arrived. We have completed all the paperwork, signed all the necessary contracts and waited patiently for the day to arrive when they tell us that site start has begun.
29/10/10 was official site start!!! It feels like forever when you are waiting for the completion of paperwork to pass so that the house can be built.
So far the front gate has been installed and some more excavating was done. Next will be some plumbing before the slab. We met our sight supervisor, Alan, over the phone...exciting that we have a SS! We have a small issue with the future septic tank. The land has been excavated and there is not enough remaining land to run the sand and filter septic system. So we are meeting up with our SS, council member and septic installer next week to determine the best solution. The new septic system is costing $14,500, another big expense. I will post some photos next week of any minor advancements.
