Ok let me start off by giving everyone a run down on my block of land.

In June 2007 we put an offer in for a block of land out in Vale. (Near the Swan Valley). Yes I know it is in the middle of nowhere and yes they do have the internets!!! So it is all good 😛
Anyway we put an offer in on this block ($2,500 deposit) and we were advised that Titles would be through in August 2007 so we should look for a house we like and sign with a builder ASAP.

So we looked around at heaps of display homes, builders etc. We eventually found one we liked in July 2007 so we signed ($1,000 deposit). Then August comes and nothing. We ring the Land Agent and they advise that is is now delayed till September…. 1 month that’s ok what do you expect with Council etc 🙂 but it doesn’t stop there September rolls by and they tell us November, then they tell us December, then January, then March!!! WTF is going on so unfortunately there isn’t a lot we can do so we generate a little noise, whinge and cry about it but yeah surprise surprise nothing.
So then they tell us May!

By this time the Quote on the house we wanted has long expired they still have our deposit and Building has gone up. So now we have title and no house. We haul ass to the builders see what they have on offer and wow they have a promotion and the floorplan is very similar to the house we wanted to build originally it includes all the variations we made previously as standard…
We as about this house and it is about 6k more. We really liked this house so we threw in a few more variations and the total cost including site works is $20,000 more than the original house we wanted to build… When will the hurting stop!!!! *Sigh*

Any way to finish this up (as I have rambled on way too long) we now have title (just waiting on settlement) and we now have a house we want to build. YAY
Hopefully this Category will tie in with my HA one and it will just be me cataloguing the events to do with construction etc of our new home.

I have taken some photos of our block and will post them up shortly.
