Today we heard from the bank that our mortgage application has been approved 🙂
Now we are only waiting for the arrangements for the purchase of the building plot to be organised. We are hoping that this will all be completed in the next two weeks, ahead of our next meeting with Viebrockhaus.
If all runs to plan, we will get the exact building start date confirmed after that meeting.
Today we also spoke to Siebau who are going to send a price proposal and plans for the metal carport we have provisionally chosen. The attraction of a metal carport – the lower maintenance versus a wooden one which will need treating every year or two – is appealing to us, but in the end, it will come down to the price difference.
Lastly for today – we have an appointment for the Ground Survey for next Wednesday. (This consists of drilling some holes and leads to getting the final pricing for the specific work needed for the building plot – up to now we have an estimate for this based on one of the neighbouring plots – let’s see how close that estimate is!)
