Oh i forgot the electricals

We spent 9k on electrical appontment which only includes under cupboard kitchen downlights (ie no other downlights at all!) Things like alarm, extra power points, data, tv points, telstra lead in (lots of metres as we are on acres) have added up quickly.. Also got wall mounts for tvs in 2 rooms (home theatre and great room). Hopefully last added expense for a while ...

Valuation has come back

So the bank has finally organised the valuation and our land is worth 15K more than the last time they valued it in december of last year! Nice! Now ive gotta wait for the bank to pull their finger out and draw up all the contracts etc. They say it will take at least a week. Im so dissapointed with CBA..

Contracts returned and DA recieved - Bank being a pain

We have recieved countersigned contracts as well as having our plans approved by certifier. MJH wants their 4% but bank didnt order valuation until i chased yet again... i ordered this a couple of weeks ago and the bank has admitted to dropping the ball.. This is just going to delay us :(

Electricals Booked for 8th March

We are expecting counter signed contracts with DA (through private certifier) this week with electrical appointment on the 8th... Really not sure what to expect but ive looked at some of the packages which include Ducted vacuum which im not interested in at all. Wonder if they will split items out as i do want alarm.. Also dont know what else i want to spend money on, friends have said get cat 6 throughout.. Dont even know what that means lol
