So we were waiting for the builder’s estimate today. By the time it got to 4pm I thought I had better phone him. He had looked at the house but had not had time to put a detailed estimate together. So far so normal, but told him we had to get a move on. So he is going to send a “high-level” estimate through so we can review.
The good news is that he thinks it will be around what the surveyor says – however the bad news is that he said “I know some people that would not touch it with a barge pole”
Currently considering if we have a long enough barge pole to touch it with. Will keep you posted.
