Discounting the purchase of land and a large pile of home design magazines, the pre-construction survey marks the first time we’ve handed over some money towards building a new home. Although it only cost $500, it feels like commitment!
The survey confirmed that we do indeed have a rectangular block of varying levels with a canal at one end and a road at the other. It shows some other stuff that will become useful eventually, but no surprises for us. With this survey in hand, our preferred builder, is now willing to prepare some detailed drawings of our potential house design and its position on our block.
