Hi Beka, l0ng time n0 hear, still n0t g0t the keyb0ard s0rted I see :unsure: . I am hoping to do weekly updates from here onwards. I would generally go to the site once a week (on a Saturday) to take photo's and check progression. I could go out there every day, but I feel the builders would just think i'm a pain in the ar$e and I really just want them to get on with it as they certainly know what they are doing

:lol: Cheers Mick :rolleyes:

As long as we're in for Christmas mate that will keep us happy. I have asked the builder if he doesn't mind me going in when the spark is in as I need to run about 50 miles of Network Cable throughout the premises (planning for the future). The builder is very accomodating I must admit (well so far anyway), Mrs Dazza has already changed 3 doorways (taken one out, put another in and widened another), he's now asked her to keep away from the site though :lol: .

Hi Kel, 3 bedrooms initially as it's a bungalow, although we will be expanding to 5 bedrooms and an office once we get the upstairs converted (it will be semi prepared upstairs as part of the build), but we are going to save up to do the upstairs or the mortgage will kill us!

There will also be a Living Room, Dining Room, Bathroom & an En-suite off the Master Bedroom, a Cloakroom, a Storeroom, a rather large Kitchen, a Utility Room and a builtin Conservatory/Sun Room (which is on the right hand side of the property looking across the best view from the site) oh and a Garage. It's quite a big house and the photo's don't really reflect the true size. Phew, well you did ask ;):)
