The generous but overly lethargic council of the Blue Mountains has finally approved our Development Application for the extension of our house. We have also recieved verbal approval from our finance provider, (the owner of our lives) Homeside. So once we have shuffled papers with our builder, finance holder it should be only a matter of weeks until our grand construction begins. Over that time i will take you through the history of our house – renovation stuff we have done – detailed plans for what we have proposed in our rennovation – plus loads of pics of houses and gardens that have inspired our reno!2 comments
Can you hear it? Its that sound, that feeling before the rush, the calm before the storm, the serene before the buildup and every other cliche that i can think of. However much like the grinding wheels of a 100 carriage coal train that bounds down the Blue Mountains, literally metres from our front door, the process of the proposed renovation has in fact started a chain reaction of events that will result in either a wonderfully purposeful house, standing like a beacon in all its architectural magnificence or the end of all things (yeah…. i can’t really back that up). We have a verbal go ahead from council and have been assured (as much as can we can be without the rubber stamp) that things are okay with our development proposal, which means that we have settled on our builder – the son of VORAM(aka George): Linden Constructions.; which means that we have signed our lives away again with our lender under the reliable direction of Gavin ( – broker extraordinaire and all round good bloke who helped us on the way to our first mortgage).
So….things are about to happen – with the speed of a panther and the force of an elephant!2 comments
