  1. Well after our original plot fell threw (long story) we found another plot with full planning for two houses but the house was just to big for us and would cost a fortune to build , we are intending building the two and living in one and selling the other so that brings our mortgage down or even no mortgage This is our proposed layout and design , the actual plot has existing planning for 300m2 property but its to big for us we feel we not having more kids we only have a 7 year old at home and have family stay very little, up stairs is designed so it could be converted to a four bed by removing the dressing area , we are going to have box trusses so the loft could be converted also at a later date if we were to sell , we probably going to have a detached car port for two cars Jackson_-_Proposed_plans_and_elevations_IJC.pdf

  5. Have recently bought a renovation project a 1967 dorma bungalow,or removing the kitchen the floor was rotten I thought it was an old water leak but when lift the floor boards there is about inch of water , there is no leaks so it must be either coming from outside or raising threw the concrete . i spoke to a neighbour and he says his is the same but it usually drys out in summer and when the heating is on. as the house has been empty for 18months . amy one else had a similar problem and or what is the best solution to fix it?
  6. Did what you said some great prices QTF look a good company any experience of these ?
  7. Do you internal breeze block and external Concerete block with insulation in the cavity .?
  8. Have done loads of research but still can’t decide on a build method. so thought I would through it open as I know most of you have used either or both methods in the past. we like the idea of a timber frame cause it quick but what’s it like living in a timber frame I.e noise levels and heat efficiency. have looked at scotframe ,potton,buildAKit, borderoak and Flemings
  9. I wouldn't PM your self , there is a lot at risk
  10. I like it , you need parking for 2 cars for a four bed , why bother with a garage at all at this stage

    As long as you have dug a strip footing and sent pictures and documented with the local authority i believe it is considered a material start and you can extend the permission
