We now have quotes in from four builders, one dropped out as the job was too big. Its pretty tight and the next challenge is to compare them all since they all include and exclude different things. I feel a spreadsheet coming on.
Otherwise things are progressing. I have been building storage at the steading for all the outdoor toys (boards, bikes etc). Also built the log store and pretty much filled it from the trees we cleared out in from in front of the house. Also been planning the best way to use all that space, its coming together. The next phase is to build and equip the workshop, then build the climbing wall. Need to get the electric in at some point soon as well.
With hedges to plant before the end of March, water and phone to put in and more trees to come down there is plenty to do.
