Here are the plans for the proposed extension. They were submitted to council for approval on July 31.
The current house section on the plan is light grey, extension is black. I am very excited to be getting a new kitchen and master with ensuite! Not to mention downstairs, which is being completely removed and re-built. It will have a rumpus, an additional bathroom and another bedroom. In total we will have 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 3 living spaces.
Upstairs the new living area and kitchen walls will mostly be glass so we will have magnificent views of the valleys. Here are a few photos of the property.
This is the house at the moment. The whole deck and the rooms under it are going to be removed. That is one of the parts I am pretty anxious about because I realised that I have to find room for not only 2 children to sleep elsewhere, but all of the stuff that is down there will have to go somewhere for the duration of the build.
Two days ago I found this notice on our fence post, not entirely attached very precisely as you can see. Though I am sure under normal outdoors conditions a staple and a paper clip would normally suffice. So I am hoping that means that the council are approving the plans as long as the public do not raise any issues?
