1st October 2018:

Pre-Planning meeting with the council today, chancing our arm for a 3 flat development but that received fairly short shrift, as we expected it would.

Whilst a great concept it was very much to go and get the measure of what we would be allowed, and that was a fairly positive meeting, with (fingers crossed, touching wood) no obvious objections to the two flat proposition that we’ll be putting in for the real planning permission application.

As we waiting on the architect to come back with a definitive plan for the project progress is slow and we’ve just started cleaning up a little.

We’ve tackled the front garden, hacking that right back, maybe too much! I am sure it will be fine once it has had the opportunity to boiunce back a little!

The jungle out back has also been taken to task, which has already created a lovely open space even though it need a bit more weeding and tidying.

Inside the house, we’ve been busy getting rid of the old smelly carpets and are now neatly folded in a couple of piles waiting on skip to throw them in, similarly for the room doors.

Where I regret my “do it properly” philosophy was definitely in the kitchen though, three layers of glued on vinyl that needed scraping off. Stubborn and sticky the whole three layers! But we got it all off in the end, dosn’t look amazing but ready for a damp proof membrane to be applied.

Of course for all I say about the first important jobs on a new project, the most important is of course filming the BBC’s Homes Under the Hammer!

6th August 2018:

Just a few of the first jobs done so far, alarm, coffee machine, first aid boxes, changed locks, some weed killing. Waiting on architect to come and have a chat about what we can and can’t do. The plan is to knock the garage down and build something, but quite what and how big will the council let us go?!

Anyway in the mean time, first look at the property and plot;
