Good News and Awful News ...

Good news is that we recieved the consolidated tender today from mcdonald jones so we are progressing nicely in that department.
The awful news is that a part of that, the soil tests came back and said that the soil classification is H1 / P ... I just feel so devastated about this and dont know what to do with this predicament. Im thinking about pulling out of the whole thing and just cutting my losses before anything else bad happens... Damn it all!

Ummmm oops

Well my missus pointed out that i didnt tell everyone what we will build. Its the Bronte Executive by McDonald Jones!! We love this house and saw the bigger version at lochinvar (maitland). The only house that we only had to do minor changes to.
We went with the 3 garage option and American colonial facade "C"

Pre Selections walk through

Spent an hour and a bit at the Baulkham Hills office going though all the selections that we will have to tackle on Selections day... So many options but i think the walkthrough helped us focus our attention to the bits we want. The best news to come out of it for me was that the flooring can be installed before they put on skirting boards so there will be no ugly beading around the edges! Awesome!!! Of course we will be spending some money on things we "must" have but will blog that wjhen we make the choices.
