Feeling happy enough to post again :)

The last month has been a sea of emotion. Should I continue.....just give up and sell the block......poor me....toughen up princess...blah blah blah.

The good news is:-
1. Yesterday I received two packages from QBE insurance. One was the release of the contract and all the information needed to complete our home with another builder without legal ramifications. The second was the 5% deposit we paid to Cosmopolitan minus their cut. Yeah I feel a tad richer.

2. I have obtained 6 different tenders. They ranged from $20,000 to $140,000 more than Cosmopolitans quoted. Since budget is a big issue we are probably going with the second cheapest as they also include flooring.
I am hoping they can start asap.

So the journey continue. I can't wait to see what the next surprise is around the corner.

Here is the floor plan. Isn't it Cute, Compact and Totally Functional. It's the perfect house plan for someone who hates vacuuming.

Bottom Floor

Top Floor

How the house sits on our block

Isn't it the cutest, most compact house for our family of five.
