Wow Albany you're building with Brian - lovely man!
Blessed - sorry didn't see your posts - wondering about the flue thing now?
We didn't give notice on our rental - they sold it on us (kept happening to us) and we just made it by the thinnest thread.
We've been in our house four months now!! It still feels very new and exciting the best thing we ever did. The waiting and issues we had during the build are all so distant now. We still are waiting on our balcony to be re done but need some drier weather for that to happen.
Over the last few weeks we've put in water tanks, more paths, a lawn, edged garden beds all around the back and side, a sand pit and tanbarked around the trampoline. Hopefully the mud trail through the house will decrease now. We now need some plants!! Also need to divert a downpipe from the top roof down to the lower roof as our water tanks are not getting enough rain. We've decided that once we have a little cash again (not likely this century) we'll put another water tank at the front for the front garden.
To anyone considering building the Buckingham 46 - you must be mad!! This house is huge as it is.
