Work continues

Went to the site at lunchtime just to check if anymore work was being done, and it turns out they have continued with the site preparation. The site has been levelled and you can see the different levels of the house (there will be a step up to the back of the house).

Away we go!

Drove to the plot last night to see if work had started. I was hoping something had been done, but with all the rain we've had I was expecting to be disappointed. Great news... work has begun!

We have a Wisdom Homes sign, a portaloo and they've begun the site scrape. Few progress photos for those interested.

Our plot is a battleaxe plot, and our piece of land is at the back. The front plot is vacant. You can see nextdoor is also a battleaxe plot, and that's roughly where the front of our plot starts.

Estimating Completed

What a relief...all paperwork is complete. Estimation is completed and the file is off to CONSTRUCTION! The diggers will be on site next week. A big weight has been lifted, and a bigger one about to land. We've been really impressed with the level of contact from the team. The estimator rang today to say he'd finished his bit and that lots of things had been going on behind the scenes, (measuring?? calculating??) and he was passing the file over to the building team and that our site manager would be Frank.

We Have a Construction Certificate!

We finally have a construction certificate! Nice. The estimators are now ordering all the stuff that's needed for the build to begin. Wisdom have advised that work should begin on site within two weeks. Can't believe something is finally going to happen after all this waiting on the council and being messed around by previous builders.
