Getting Quotes

OK we're back from holidays today. I spent a couple of hours marking up copies of the house/land layout for faxing out to suppliers for quotation purposes. I had four marked up plans showing:

1. Retaining wall positions and height plus including the design table for the walls as supplied by the engineering report.

2. Areas of the house to be carpeted and areas to be tiles.

3. A site layout showing likely stormwater drainage and including a total length of stormwater likely to be required.

4. A site layout showing the total area to be paved and the area of the driveway to be paved.

Once I'd prepared these drawings I faxed each one to several suppliers asking for quotations within 7 days. These quotations will help with our own budget but will also be supplied to the bank for finalizing the loan process.
