Nevermind Polling day - Railing day is much more important! After a few weeks of no word from the railing people, we got a call yesterday asking if we would be at home this morning at 9am so they could fit the railings on the back steps. Early morning meetings were rearranged, and yes, we were in! It only took them a couple of hours to fit them and do the final coat of paint and we are finally ready for the 'it has to be the last inspection please please please' by Building Control so that we can get the house signed off.
Ensuite gym - check
New window even Santa could climb out of sideways - check
Fan in annex - check
Railings on back steps - check
That should be a full checklist, with lots of ticks then we can get back into the real world of standard domestic mortgages and be able to eat again...
Watch this space for what happens next, because if there is one thing I have learnt over the past year, is the unpredictable nature of inspections and sign offs...!
