I think it could be time for another celebration!
Darran was just about to call them again and then the postman arrived. Saved by the bell! Darran was off yesterday too so had the day to really look over the drawings. He is happy with them and just has a few things to clarify today with the project manager.
He also phoned the water board and our water connection is now being 'fast tracked' so we should have that sorted fairly soon.
It is nice to know we have a bit of persuasive influence (or clout!) between us when necessary, just a shame we have had to use it so early into the project!
