    Grid Connection

    Hi Dave sorry to answer your questions How many properties? 1 Single or 3 phase supply requested? Single What rating (how many KVA) have you asked for or been offered? 20 KVA How far from the 3 phase overhead to your plot? I would say about 100 meters Is that going to be overhead or underground? if so who is doing the digging? Underground and I will do the civils Is the 11KV overhead being altered in any way or just a transformer and your connection? It may well require an upgraded pole or twin poles for the transformer) 11Kv work will require a partial network shutdown, that is not done live. they have not stated thanks

    I think I will go back to SPN and ask for a firm quote to see if this changes

    Thanks the quote of SPNetworks is 12K that is with me doing the ground works. The reason is they need to install a transformer so was looking for comparison

    Grid Connection

    Hi I am building a house in Scotland and have had a quote from Scottish Power Networks for a connection to the grid. They have a list of about 50 to 60 alternative providers that can do the work so I would like to compare the quote. Not sure who I should contact though for another couple of quotes Has any one had any experience with this thanks

    Timber Frame Scotland

    hi I have had quotes from Scotframe who has proposed SIPS and Fleming Homes who has proposed a traditional timber frame construction for my house. The house is going to be in East Ayrshire, Scotland and I am not sure who to approach for Timber frame quotes. Any recommendations of companies that people have used would be good as I only approached the 2 above by googling thanks
  11. Hi The plot I am going to purchase already had planning permission. The Architect used these plans an amended them to my design this made the house twice the size. i an going to add for further amendments which will include a garage. In the eyes of the vat inspector what ones ate the approval plans. The first ones or the ones with the last amendments before I start to build. thanks

    Self Build Mortgage Options

    Hi I am currently looking to finance a build in Scotland and was looking for advice on funding options. I am looking to fund land at 100 K build costs of 270K and have a 70k deposit I have looked at the following Scottish Building Society but they only give LTV of 60% Mary Riley Custom Build Funding Limited (I have spoken to her and she sounds very knowledgeable) but charges 1% fee then I will have mortgage fees after that. The build store but heard so many bad things about them Ecology Building Society I would like to get an offer in principal so I could go ahead and start the legal process on the land. Any advice would be gratefully received. Grant
