  3. Interior Wood Cladding and Fire Regs

    I’d fix a layer of plasterboard first for the sake of a couple of hours and a few quid It would make fixing the timber easier and take the spring out of your cladding I’m guessing your trusses are 600 apart
  4. Warranty inspection woes.

    I’m not sure why anyone would use a private building control as a posed to local authority I’m paying £700 for local authority I tried three others all around 800 One would match the 700 But the clincher was local BC Ring before ten Same day visit The others would not match that Most of the time you able to give a couple days notice But at the foundation and drainage stage our local was visiting twice per day at the beginning No extra cost Our warantee chap has visited twice Didn’t get out of the car for foundations Inspected the roof from the ground second visit Just requested lots of photos £2500 well spent Or was It?
