Yes, things are still happening but no, we haven't moved yet.

We got a copy of the final plans to check. There were quite a few things that had been missed that were in the draft plan, but we got that sorted out and a few other minor changes. You remember that I mentioned that the council required that the ground floor be taller than the base house plan. Turns out that this was very useful, even though it cost us (will cost us) a considerable amount of extra dosh. Because the ground floor ceiling is higher, so is the garage roof. This means that we can have higher doors on the garage. When we checked the original size, we would only have had about 1cm clearance for the van. Now we have plenty.

All of the extra changes (including the change in the garage door height, wider door for the front entry, change to the ensuite shower screen, window size changes) added very little to the overall cost as there were some deletions and some had been included in the original costing.

So final final plans now being prepared to send in for various approvals - BASIX, NaTHERS and Council.
