So, we are still progressing – slowly! On the upside we have some builders who have shown genuine interest in our project and have been out to talk to us. We also had one who submitted a quote. On first glance of the email on the phone the price looked OK – just outside what we had hoped for, but on closer inspection the list of exclusions contained every item we had wanted included! I hope that was just his way of saying he wasn’t interested after all and not an indication that we can only afford to build a shell of a house!
