The day we got the keys for the rental, we also signed our building contract. This was a major milestone and one which for a while we thought may never happen. We have submitted all the plans to the certifier. this would have been a simple process dealing just with the private building certifier, though we need a relaxation for the carport, so the relaxation needs to go to council.
Somewhere in this period we also got our report back from the Acoustic consultant. You may recall in an earlier post, we are in a Transport Noise Corridor . We had to have noise logging done for 48 hours and then this needed to be analysed. We got the report back and it was good news, which advised that we did not have to do any extra noise attenuation measures in the build.
We also got our final finance approval so are now just awaiting for the certified plans and some other documentation to submit to the bank to get the construction payments started.
