Signing On the Dotted Line!

It's been weeks since I last posted but thats because I've been on a contract teaching Year 7 and it's been hectic. I've been so busy and too tired to write any posts lately but this is my last week on contract and I have a public holiday and pupil free! Only 3 teaching days and so much to fit into them!

This post is really about our house. We've been emailing HBAS for the past few months sorting out the plans and today, in about 1 and half hours, we find out at last exactlly how much our house will cost to build. Really this will be a make or break appointment. We'll either be all systems ahead for building or we'll be back to saving. I hope and pray we can start building very soon!
(Note: I wrote this part of the post last Wednesday.)

Our prayers have been answered and on Sunday afternoon we signed our building contract! We also picked out our house colours on Wednesday and went through all of the inclusions. It really was very exciting! We're now waiting to receive an email with our building contracts to forward to the bank and once all of the finance is approved and building permits have come through the council, we are all systems go for our house being built! They say 3 or 4 weeks from now before it will start however I wouldn't be surprised if it was a little bit longer!

However as long as the rain holds off and there are no real problems, we should be in our very first, brand spanking new house by Christmas time! What an amazing Christmas present that would be!

 We also bought a Fridge/Freezer and washing machine on Saturday and they are being held until our house is all finished! Exciting times are not ahead of us anymore, they are here and I can't wait to step foot in our very own house!!!!!!!!!!
