The work to the house has not started and it’s May 2017. I’ve decided to start this blog late which means I have a lot of catching up to do. I’ll try to explain as much as I can on the process and go through as many steps as I can remember. Luckily I have a good paper trail. I’m hoping this blog will help other first-timers understand the process better and for me personally, it’s a good way of remembering what we went through. Hope it helps.
