Today we had another meeting with Odell to go over the final pricing and plans ready to be submitted to council. Everything went really smoothly and although Odell did say it came in a little extra than he thought, mainly due to storm water and footings, the price was still within budget and still leaves us with a bit of wriggle room when it comes to finalising our selections.
So our next installment has been paid, the preliminary contract has been signed, we are ready to go to council and are aiming to have our selection appointments within the first 2 weeks of September. Estimated build start is said to be around November/December 2012 (this is not set in stone though) and Odell said he'd be surprised if it takes longer than 4 months to build.
Feels good to see things progressing ... now on to selections!
