We met with our project manager and architect yesterday and have pressed the 'Go' button!
We have signed a contract and appointed a contractor to carry out the foundation and groundworks. They start on the 11th May and will complete on or before 19th June.
We are so pleased to have a start date, both for starting on site, but also to have a date that we can work to. We will now be able to plan our time so much better and work out delivery schedules and lead times.
Our project manager was far more positive and we have definitely found a level. He seems genuinely enthusiastic and interested in our build and what we will be doing when his role has finished.
For now though, it's a huge sigh of relief. This may only be short lived but we're enjoying it at the moment!
