Siteworks now done. Was supposed to be having footings done Tuesday gone but it rained all day!!!! - not the best time of year to be building but keeping our fingers crossed. Spoke to our builders who say footing should now be done next week but it has not altered the slab going down a few days after so maybe not as bad as we thought. Will keep you all informed.
Hi Jannina, hope you guys are well and have started settling in ok. Good luck with your rental application in Clarkson, just round the corner so we could still meet for a coffee.
Our house is scheduled to take 6 months but at the moment they are getting them done in about 4 months so keeping our fingers crossed. We bought private land in November so we have been paying back a home loan for that only since Dec 07. The house works differently, the bank agrees the amount to borrow then releases amounts of money as required by the builders so you do not have to pay full loan amount until the house is ready. This means that while you are still paying rent the home loan rises gradually so we should be ok paying both.
Can not wait to see it coming together and even more to get in it! My mum comes over in December so would be lovely to be in and settled by then. Hope to hear from you soon - Sharron x
