Now this is what pisses me off - I spent 5 minutes writing a rant about how the government is wasting $1,350,000,000 of taxpayers money on a rubbish ticketing system that doesn't work, and it disappeared from my screen! Believe me, it was a well written and very pointed piece about corruption in Australian politics, but I can't recreate it now. Bah. Google, fix Blogger!!
Anyway, the point was, Happy New Year or something like that; and because this blog is about building houses not bitching about politicians (they rise to the top, like a decomposing body after a week in a stream), here's a couple of Metricon Nolan related posts for your continued enjoyment.
Remember this Nolan I was writing about, in Dec 09?
I was reading through the Section32s (which I had ingeniously photographed using my iPhone), and the build permit for this Nolan was only approved in mid-April 2009. And seeing as it was all wrapped up and sold by December 19, that puts the build time at approximately 8 months, which is a lot better than our quoted 370 days! Now I'm not trying to get our hopes up - if our Nolan could be done in 8 months (ie Aug 2010) that would be beyond awesome! But like I said before, not getting our hopes up.
To finish off this New Years' Day blog post, I found that someone put a video on Youtube walking through the original Nolan display home in Point Cook, which shut down I think end of 2008? This is the ugly Nolan that features on the M website, complete with moose head and horrible green walls everywhere. Anyway, we didn't get to walk through this Nolan (there's a new big Nolon display house in Point Cook, but it's one that has the usual $200,000 worth of options including ensuites to every room). Click on the vid below - enjoy!
