have just spoken to our prospective builder who has said we will have an initial price in our hands by the end of the week. this is great news. things have been slow of late with the plans being in council and the builder considering whether they will be able to do the work. even if they come back with the wrong price, at least it'll mean i get to do some work (wheeling and dealing or re-drawing), and won't feel so impotent.
the target is $2000/sqm with not a lot of wiggle room at all! can't wait to get into it.
zac and i have just booked a europe trip for feb, so i want to get the house rolling so we have somewhere to move back into!
