We had quite a few dramas trying to get all of the paperwork prepared and sent in to council. Things certainly did not move as we would have liked. We had to keep following things up with them and were reassured time and again that everything would be done "next week". After a month of added delays, we were promised that we would lodge to council before the Christmas break. Then, the afternoon before our deadline, we were sent an email stating that it was not going to happen.
While we had been informed that we were just waiting for the address to be changed on some paperwork, it turned out that we were still waiting for Basix and landscape plan as well. I contacted management who were straight onto getting everything sorted. True to their word, we were lodged to council on Masterton's last day of the year.
No we can just hope that we get approval before Masterton come back in 2014. That would be a great Christmas present.
Today we had our tile appointment with Don's Tiles at Narellan. We ended up upgrading the kitchen splashback which was not too expensive. We also upgraded wall tiles in the main bath and ensuite and the floor and feature tiles in the ensuite. Then we made the main bath and ensuite floor to ceiling tiles.
Here are our tile selections:Kitchen Splashback
