Signing everything this week.

Well the bank stuff is sorted. Basically now everything is approved and we're good to go. Westpac came through at the end of the day after I basically said they were about to lose me and my wife as a customer and all our bank accounts.

Tomorrow night we head in to the bank to sign our paperwork, Tuesday we go into Kurmond to pay our first big payment (second) and sign our contracts. (After I get them to fix a few things)

We should be building by Christmas some time which is good. People who bought in Jordan Springs have 26 weeks from settlement to start building otherwise they maybe required to pay Stamp Duty they signed the stat declaration for. Ours ends Dec 16th so we're leaving it a bit late because of all our hurdles, don't worry though, if the builder knows they can arrange a letter to have the time extended but you need to let your builder know upfront.

We've done our tiles and we need to go back and do more (electrical etc), but it doesn't matter now as the plans will be off as of Tuesday so I'm happy.

On another note I've contacted open networks about what we need to do to connect he FTTH connection. Their website makes no sense to me.


  1. That's great you have everything sorted. You should speak to your electrician they will explain it way better than website does, we were confused as well from the website. We are waiting for our plans to come out of council should hopefully soon been in there for 5 weeks, feels like forever.

  2. Have you had a look up there recently mate? I noticed the other day that the people next to you/directly across the road from me have a site fence up now.

  3. Hi Luke and Peta,
    Just started following your Blog. We are building the (Modified) Glenleigh 39 with Kurmond and look to be a few months further along the process than you guys. Look forward to watching your progress, and you can see what you've got coming up in our Blog!
    Cheers Derrick and Rebecca.

  4. Hi guys - been a bit busy lately but yeh Ian I saw the neighbour has started building, I went to the Penrith DA tracker and he's doing it as a CDC, which is odd for a house so not much info on there to look at. It's realy all starting to happen out there now.

    Dez and Beck - tha's awesome, I'll follow for sure. How's the house coming along. Have you had any issues with any of it so far?
