Thank you Trimum - I see that you are still not finished either! Last time i built, the builder went bankrupt. I've come to the conclusion that that is preferable, because at least you know the reason that nothing is happening, and that when the insurance things get themselves sorted out, you can get on with it again. This is just never-ending, and emotionally so debilitating, not to mention expensive - 9 months now paying both rent and mortgage.
Yes financially it’s horrific! We have been paying rent and mortgage for over a year, we have 8 more weeks of this, we have been very generous in giving our builder more than enough time to finish and have received as much of a guarantee as we can from them that we will have keys in 8 weeks time.
