Exchange of contracts!

It was only this time last week that we got the phone call about the land in Balmoral opposite the lakeside reserve. Today we signed and exchanged contracts on the sale of the land so now we officially have a water tight and binding agreement! We are so excited and have paid a deposit to our builder who is drawing up plans to submit to council asap. We are hoping that maybe only 12 weeks from now they will start the building!!! When we studied a map of the area in more detail we saw that the small inlet of water we are across the road from is called "Secret Bay" We went up to the plot this evening when Byron finished work and popped a bottle of bubbly for us (Fanta for the kids!) and toasted to a happy future! Watch this space for updates!!!
