Oh wow, a big job! Good luck with the builders; definitely the hardest decision! We're finally sorted with a builder (sent out requests in November) now just waiting on him to finish his current job so that we have a definite start date.... so some point in July!
Following as we (I think unrealistically) would also like to have finished our enormous project by christmas... Unfortunately we're still at the drawings stage without a sniff of planning permission! We're looking at doing a single storey side extension (but on a sloping site which is a headache), moving internal walls and bathroom on 1st floor and a loft conversion, so sounds quite similar to yours Mama. Quite why we didn't just BUY the house we're trying to create I don't know
Good to know that I wasn't the only one who had been following up with architect and builders for so long now! We are doing side and back extension of our bungalow and loft conversion/first floor extension.
Hi All. Just waiting for quotes from two builders. Got our plans approved in November (garage conversion and new bedroom above it) However- we just know the neighbours are going to be as awkward as possible when we need to put scaffolding up! Sometimes wish we'd just looked for a bigger house.
If we're not in by Christmas I'll shoot myself. Supposed to be moving in by August 1st, but I doubt everything will be completely done. Christmas is my goal to have the smaller bits finished as my parents are coming to stay with us in the new house, so I want to have it looking ship shape by then!
