    MBC pricing schedule

    Thanks for this information. I have sent an email asking politely if we could get the schedule as the quote suggests. So hopefully we will get a positive response.

    These were what we were quoted. We are also with foundation... however in contract our schedule is: 10% 27.7% 27.7% 19.2% 11.5% 3.8% so fairly different.

    MBC pricing schedule

    Quick question... Is it typical of the timber frame company (or any company for that matter) to change the payment schedule from what was said in the quote to what has been stated in the contract? The change means we have to part with a lot more cash earlier than expected. Just wanted to see what everyone else thought before we get too heated about it! Thanks
  4. What price did you get it from from there? I am set on getting a Novy and trying to save money elsewhere in the Kitchen!
  5. I have been looking at the Novy on the net and am impressed with what i ave seen and read. Where can i buy the Novy in the UK?
  6. Hubby works from home during day a couple of days and evenings. So a study is a must.
  7. The bedrooms are all more than 3mx3m so maybe there will be space... although don’t like the idea of jack and Jill en-suite. The shower room on the top floor might help for future years! The eldest is currently only 8!
  8. Thank you for all the comments. The reason for the 5 bedrooms is due to having 4 children. We would like them to have a bedroom each. We are removing the pantry altogether. So the curved wall will go. The lounge is about 21ft x 15ft at the northern end. Will have a look at the utility/WC area/stairs, although I don’t want to compromise the space in the hall too much.... very aware of how congested it gets when 4 children are getting themselves ready to go to school!! Lots to think about before meeting our architect this evening.
  9. Hello, We are awaiting approval for planning and wondered if there were any tweaks to the floor plans we should consider before we give the go ahead for building reg drawings. We are compromised by size of external ground floor footprint and the house has to be built similar to the old Code 6 standards.

    Was it that bad?

    Thank you very much. This could prove very helpful!

    The above guidance is very helpful. Around our plot there are a number of houses that have been granted planning permission on the basis that they are built to what used to be 'code 6' standards. So would have PV on every one - This may have influenced the condition!

    It is a condition on our planning permission... probably shouldn't have said council.... I meant planning officers.
