Oh! I forgot to mention...

On Thursday, we had some people turn up asking if they could look though our house as they are planning on building the 'homestead 37' just up the road from us..
I was at work, but Tim was here and let them into the living areas only.
Apparantly, Newstart Homes is giving them a bit of grief and would not even tell them that our house is the homestead37! I bet they don't want to build this far out of town again! hahaha
They said they have their heart set on the design, so it will be interesting to see the outcome.

Pool update

We are actually one step ahead than these pics are showing - we have the panels up now as well..
The council came out and gave us the go-ahead to fill with water and backfill, but the fence is only approved as a temporary fence. The gap under the fence is way too high to have passed as permanent fencing. The council wont take into account that we will concrete around the pool which will fill the gap, so we need to get them back once its concreted to get the final approval..
Tomorrow, Tim will put the sand in the bottom and the liner.. and hopefully get the water installed (if we can get the truck out here).. and then our generous neighbour has agreed to backfill it with his machine ( in return Tim will concrete a pad at his house he wants done.. great barter!)
All should be done by christmas.. just!
After christmas will be putting in shade sails, lighting, concrete, landscaping etc.. never ends!!
