the kitchen saga nears movement….

yes I know its been a long drawn out process BUT….

this week I had a draftsman come visit.  He quoted be with two options….one was relatively inexpensive (aka not much over budget) the other was scary…..the first involved me having the plans for the house so he only had to draw the alterations…the other involved him drawing plans for the house as it is AND the changes…..lots of $$$ in the difference!

Luckily I had already been on the phone and for the princely some of $5 have a copy of the original plans for the house coming from the department of Housing who initially owned this house when it was built in 1969! (yup older than we thought too).

And now for the good news…..(especially for those who have had enough of listening and just want to see it done)….I should have the plans for the house by the end of next week. Once I get them to the draftsman he will have the drawings done in about a week and council will only take a week to 10 days to approve them…..which means we could be ready to knock down the wall in a MONTH!

*mumbling something about having to get all the crap out of the way pretty soon and wondering where I am going to put stuff in the meantime*
