Everyone tells you building takes longer than you think. I figured I'd add an extra couple of months, maybe even six, to be on the safe side....a year and a half later and we STILL haven't got building consent. Moreover, this doesn't seem to be an uncommon position. If you've been following our journey on stuff you'll know that our timeline had a serious hiccup with a less than helpful architect, and that with Christmas coming, all bets are off when it comes to getting a builder on site. But we're still hopeful that with a little help from our friends we'll dig a few holes super soon. Fox has been telling us that the diggers are coming for some weeks. If a three year old is that certain about something, it must be true...right?
This week I'm talking about how to get your builder to stick around when you finally get one - or rather, how to chose the team that are going to pull your dream house out of the sky and create it, stick by stick, or block by block - just like a team of busy hamsters. Okay, maybe not hamsters, maybe more _like these guys...
