Are we actualy getting any closer?

ETA: Updated 5th Sep. Just so I can keep track of what is happening  :)

It sure doesn't feel like it.

What's happening at the moment. I will make a list so I don't forget.

- Waiting for next door neighbour to sign protection notice for building on the boundary. They came back a with a $180 and hour fee for their surveyor's time. They are going to ask their engineer for advise. Neighbour to re-ask if they can do it for free. Or help pay some of the cost. Should be done on Monday!! Yippee! Has been signed. Just need a few more details. Although I am tempted to hand it in as is. Handed in!

- Still waiting for owner builder permit to come through. Be another 4 weeks. Still in assessment phase. Had a call about one thing so must be underway. Got it and handing to the surveyor to day.

- Waiting for the energy audit to arrive. We have been sent an invoice but no report. Paid the invoice so should get it today. Got it and sent it to Surveyor!!!

- Draftsman is in the process of altering our drawings  to add in the new house next door. Should be done before he goes on holidays on Tuesday. He has some other info to report back to our surveyor too. Gave him the drawings of the house next door yesterday. Got the new drawings and sent them off to the surveyor.

- Land surveyors check. Getting another quote for land surveyor. Just got one in today for $2200!!!! Surely they don't cost that much. Next quote in $1100 and he is doing it tomorrow :) Done and paid for, just waiting for them to email it to us. Got it and sent it to the surveyor.

- Proof of ownership (from our bank). Asked the bank and they said go get a title certificate so will chase up about that. This wasn't on the last list that he sent us so hopefully not required.

- Have to mark up some things on the drawings. Down pipes and levels etc. Surveyor to do it.

- Window. 1 m to the sky. Need report and consent. Think we wont worry about this.


It helps to write it all down. I have probably miss things though.

I just want to start picking our wall colours and fixtures already!!
