We had grand plans to do the knockdown rebuild 3 years ago after the wedding but life took over and slowly the dream faded into the background. After welcoming daughter number 3 in September 2012, the idea of building our dream home for our family to enjoy and create long lasting memories in started to form inside my head. And so the quest to find the perfect block to build our McMansion began. As a buyer, we couldn’t have picked the worst time to be in the market as Sydney prices surged to dizzying heights jumping more than $100,000 in only a few months! Just as I was ready to take a break and throw in the towel, my dear husband managed to pull off a deal and a great block that pretty much ticked the boxes was ours. Sold prior to auction! Not wasting anytime to get the ‘knockdown rebuild’ ball rolling, we paid Metricon the initial deposit 2 days after exchanging contracts. We had our tender presentation 1 week before settlement and we figure we have 6 weeks up our sleeves. We had our contract presentation and external colour selections this Tuesday so we’re another stage closer to the build. We hope to write a separate post for each stage of the build but that’s all for now.
Thanks for dropping by and welcome to our humble online abode!
