I have noticed there have been a few threads asking for feedback on Planbuild homes. I was also searching for a comprehensive thread regarding the building experience with them whilst trying to decide on a builder - I really wish I had such a clear timeline and up to date dialogue on the building process.
We were quite frustrated to be stuck in admin land ... Now that we are onto the construction side of things, I thought it would benefit others to document our journey.
As such, I have decided to start my own thread to hopefully empower others to make informed decisions based upon my experience.
