A nice little Christmas present - we received notification today that the DA has been approved by Council without modification and the job has been passed onto the Certifier for the Construction Certificate. We should be starting construction by early February.
There may be one hiccup though - I asked for the approved plans so I could send them to the bank. When I checked them I noticed that they had not been updated with our overhead cupboards in the kitchen, which also means a large window was still shown in the kitchen rather than a slim bench height one. I specifically pushed for that variation to go through so it would be ready for DA submission. I am now waiting to hear back from Fowler Homes. Hopefully no big deal, fingers crossed.
Update - all good, doesn't, need to go back to Council. February start here we come!
