  1. I've had a couple of strikes on the large patio doors. Think I am going to hang something decorative & twinkly that dangles along the length of the overhang.
  2. Thanks for all the lovely comments guys. Still pinching myself to believe it. Still a lot to do inside, but getting there. One of the best decisions was to have the open plan living area spray painted. Its a fantastic finish & was so quick. It would have taken me a month of Sundays & the large ceiling would have shown every roller mark & streak. Wish I could have afforded to have the whole house done. It has taken me ages & the vaulted room upstairs was a real PITA to do with all the angles & being so high. Working on the utility/plant room at the moment. Should have shower room finished in next couple of weeks. I did supply & fit for the landscaping. I think the gravel crates were about £12 each 1m2 with the weed membrane on. Expensive, but cheaper than block paving or resin. I wanted something low maintenance that didn't move when driven over & didn't need constant raking. I also like the look of gravel.
  3. No longer a muddy building site after nearly 3 1/2 years, Hooray. Landscaping just finished during the wettest 2 weeks of the year. Never mind, it is done. Used the plastic honeycomb gravel crates with the weed membrane on the back. Lawn & wild flower meadow to sow, fencing & planting to be done, so still a long way to go, but at least some progress.
  4. +1 to all of the above. I will come in at about £1900/m2 about £400/m2 more than originally planned for. This will be for everything, soup to nuts, including buying neighbours land, easements, all fees & utilities. I have increased the spec on quite a lot of the interior than was planned. As the build developed I felt it warranted it, however, tried very hard not to get too carried away.
  5. Agree with @PeterW about GD. It was terrible. Dying on its feet. Some interesting stands at UK Construction. Some of the exhibitors that used to be with GD have moved over to it & some stands with interior finishes I haven't seen before. Enjoyed meeting Peter & having a good chat with a fellow 'hubber'.
  6. @PeterW. Coffee on me if you fancy meeting up to say hello. PM me with mobile.
  7. @PeterW If you do go & want to meet up & have a coffee let me know. @Oz07 I found it interesting. I wouldn't bother for GDL on its own but combined is OK. Also in need of a bit of a jolly.
  8. I am going on 10th Oct. Its free if you apply online & means you can also visit Grand Designs Live. I found UK construction interesting when last there a couple of years ago. If anyone wants to meet up let me know.
  9. Thanks for the info chaps. I will look into this. @Oz07 I do want gates for security really as the location is a bit vulnerable & I am on my own.
  10. A condition of my planning permission is to install inward opening electric gates 5m back from the public highway. I am on a single track lane & need to have a cars length to pull off the road in front of the gates. My access is also slightly sloping uphill. Has anyone any knowledge of electric gate mechanisms? Prices from electric gate companies are prohibitive for me at the moment. I have seen mechanisms for sale on ebay that could be affordable but just a bit unsure if any good. The gates & gateposts will be timber. Any suggestions appreciated.
