So, we are getting the wall!
Turns out that it is rather affordable and is being drawn up straight away. The measurements have worked out well and we think it will fit perfectly into our bedroom. It seems like it was meant to be. Especially that it will still sit well with our bay window. It definitely fixes the worries I had about the length of the bedroom. Can't wait to start turning it into a feature wall. We also need to pick out some pendant lights which will hang down on both sides of the bed instead of having lamps.
Meanwhile, we are still waiting on council approval. We've been working on maintaining the block a lot more than usual. Over the Summer/Christmas period we were so busy every weekend with house planning that it got a little bit out of control. We ended up getting a guy to come and mow/brush cut. Now that we have more time on our hands, we are getting back into it. We've been mowing, brush-cutting, weeding along the fence line and killing as many weeds as we can. It will be SO much easier when we actually live out there and can just pop outside to do some gardening rather than having to drive out there and take everything with us.
Really looking forward to our tree change, fingers crossed.
