Engineering approval and model construction – July 18, 2017

After a couple of weeks wait we’ve now received engineering approval for our home design. Apparently the post placement in the kitchen took a little longer than anticipated to resolve. The posts will be spotted gum with final positioning decided after some Lego construction from Jill.

Not satisfied with the multi-colour version of our kitchen bench I joined forces with Riley and Darcy to create a more detailed model of our kitchen.

So where are things at now? We’re just waiting on a final variation (more $’s) from the builder before changes are sent to the guys responsible for updating the construction drawings. These drawings will be signed off and sent to local council to get approval for a building permit. Once this is received (2 weeks?) we’ll be able to start construction.

With July flying past it’s looking more like an August start.
