The house build is back on

I haven’t for so long I don’t really know where to begin….the intention has been there, the will not.

But I’m back and have a few moments to myself as Daddy Abs is away this weekend 😦 Not entirely thrilled about it hey work is work.

Our biggest news is that the house build is back on! We looked long and hard at our finances and thought to ourselves….we are going to save for two years and in the end barely keep up with inflation and the rising costs of building so what’s he point. ….so we’ve decided to take the plunge and go ahead and I must say I’m super excited!

I believe everything happens for a reason and over the past two weeks or so we have met a lovely man called Neil Roomer from Born free construction, who is an absolute Godsend! He is an architect and interior designer but also spend many years working with his brother construction. So he’ll be facilitating the build at a fraction of the cost of a normal contractor.

So the plans are done ,he nailed them pretty much first time, and today we signed off the sketch!!

So we’ve gotten our four bedrooms my walk in closet, a BEAUTIFUL big garden and we dont have to cut into the bank and retain any walls!

Next step is doing working drawings and submitting to council.

I’m nervous… I think anyone would be but at the same time I’m super excited that by the middle of next year we’ll be in our own home and this space will have a house on it.


Watch this space, there will be plenty build talk in the coming months no doubt 🙂
