Progress at last

Progress at last on the dream house front, WOOO HOOO!!!!

We actually sat down with an architect yesterday to get some plans drawn up for the dream house.This will take a couple of weeks for the first draft.
We will go through the process of plans & development application to council & hopefully by this stage we will have one or two properties sold & be able to begin building.
We will be going owner builder so it will all happen slowly but from cost estimates so far it looks like we will save approx 30%  on what the two different builders quoted price.

I thought I would leave you with a little eye candy as well....Dont you just love this gorgeous room...the rug...those cushions...Oh I love it all!!!!
