Just a quick message to say, no we’re not dead and the project is still progressing. We are waiting for the Builder to get back to us with a quotation, a process that has been a bit delayed by easter, suppliers and life in general. Hopefully not too much longer before we can agree the contract and actually start building!
No great leap of progress to report at the moment but many, many things are progressing. In no particular order the team have:
- designed out most of the new steel structure, replacing it with wood to dramatically improve the thermal efficiency of the building;
- lots and lots and lots of detailed drawings have been produced ready for the construction stage;
- we have agreed a plan for the perimeter fence with our Farmer neighbour;
- surreally work has started to select final room finishes including carpet and tiles;
- we have started prepping the party wall paperwork for our neighbours;
- our plywood kitchen is starting to firm up;
- a garden plan is coming together and …
… we have started negotiating with a Builder. More soon.
