The Famous PortaLoo

Finally the day we've been waiting for. Or should I say the day for most of us building our own house. The famous PortaLoo is here.!! YAY!!

The lot has been sitting flat for a year long planning and paperwork. Finally. Since we're living around 1hr away from the site, we cannot visit the site as often as we'd like. Luckily we have a good friend that live very close that send this picture to us today. It was taken on 12:50pm today.

From the picture it appears to be the site cut has started.

Authority to Commence Construction received

Hi all,

It's been a while since I update this blog. Believe it or not. This is how long the bank took us the journey of the most painful part of the process. Hopefully. Practically It takes 2 months just to get Authority to Commence Construction letter from the day we receive the DA approval which we submitted to the bank on the same day. Un-believable!! The bank was very slow in response. We practically hassle our broker almost everyday which I felt sorry for her. Initially we thought it was our broker but as soon as we receive full approval letter and hassling the bank, It was the certifier team at the bank. The excuse was a junior person handling our case. Sigh!

Anyhow it's over now we finally move on to the next stage, ie 15 days cooling period before construction starts. Can't wait to see what everybody are excited about at this stage of the building ie, Portaloo and fencing on our land.  :D  Yipee!!

Still flat.
