Well that took longer than expected. While negotiations are not completely finished, we have very nearly agreed build costs for our new house and this week signed a letter of intent which will allow ground works to start in two weeks (eek!)
The last few weeks have been a bit stressful but we’re pleased to say that the core sustainability ethos of the project has survived the head scratching even if the gold taps had to go. Initial work will consist of site clearance, prepping the site for construction with hard standing for skips and so on, stripping the roof off the Stables and trenching ready for utilities; so at long last we should get some pictures of progress to post here!
In a display of confidence the letter also includes a date on which the build will finish … apparently we are moving in on the 28th June 2022.
We shall see.
