Well you will like my plan then @GardensandGrandDesigns .
Carpet down on a Wednesday/Thursday and we move in on Friday.. It’s way too close for comfort but that’s the way it had to be as we didn’t want to move in all our stuff and then move it all out again for carpets.
There will be no kitchen, downstairs floors, electrical supply downstairs, entrance door, etc. But we will be home and living upstairs.

@SpotOnMyBot , I didn’t comment on your other thread but I feel for you having difficult neighbours. We have had ups and downs - immediate neighbours have been great, but neighbour two doors down called me immoral and threatened to get an injunction against us. I found that very difficult and it gave me lots of anxiety as she egged other neighbours on to complain (fortunately they are good friends so told us about it and batted her away).
if you stick to what is allowed by your council, the lawyer neighbours don’t have a leg to stand on. You will have to be firm and friendly, so it’s clear while you sympathise with their woes, the building works are going to proceed. Slowing down isn’t in anyone’s interest, and you can’t do digging/scaffolding without making noise.
Frankly I’m surprised they think they have any grounds to stop you. I’m a lawyer myself - they should know better! Stay strong. 💪🏼
