    We (or rather, our architect) will be submitting for planning permission from North Dorset Council later this week. Cue 8 weeks of nail biting. It seems to have taken a long time to get to this stage, but it's worked out okay in terms of timing on finances and bats as well as a couple of other things, so the enforced exercise in patience has done us no harm. The plot is quite long and narrow, roughly running north south with nice views in all directions apart from due south where there are a couple of neighbouring cottages. Not that they look bad, they're just not as pretty as the countryside. The existing dwelling is a 3 bedroom Woolaway type bungalow, built sometime around 1970 and we want to replace it with a 2 storey, 3 bedroom contemporary build. As it's just the two of us and the cats, we want larger rooms rather than more rooms. Nothing is decided in terms of building system yet - all that and quotes come next, along with everything else that's involved, so I'll be putting plenty of questions on the forum, I hope, in the near future as this is such an invaluable resource. Here's a photo shop mock-up of the proposed house and some floor plans. 1120 - 103DIMS - Bagber Farm Cottage - PROPOSED GROUND FLOOR.pdf 1120 - 104DIMS - Bagber Farm Cottage - PROPOSED FIRST FLOOR.pdf
