Well I’ll be a Monkey’s Uncle!
[Photographer David Slater had his camera ‘borrowed’ by a primate who proceeded to take a series of selfies. I know it is not a monkey but it makes me smile…]
Wisdom’s first week back saw My Home Central complete our TECK approval. Then last week our CDC compliance was approved. We were also told we should receive our Draft End Panel last week as well.
I said to my husband ‘Well I’ll be a monkey’s uncle if they have it ready by then’. Low and behold Wisdom came through with it at 4pm on Friday afternoon so now I am officially a monkey’s uncle 🙂
[My husband says that the only people who still use this expression are my father and myself but Google proves him wrong].
There were only a couple of errors which is pretty good going considering the number of variations we raised. I have created a document listing them and anything else that I think should be noted on the Construction Plans or be down in black and white for an audit trail.
Hopefully they will turn it around quickly as they seem to be on a roll at the moment which is great.
The Draft End Panel is your Contract Tender with additional pages listing all your variations and the total cost is the final line. We already have our building mortgage pre approved on the cost estimate we gave them but now we can send this through to them to finalise it.
Once we sign off on the draft end panel Wisdom will order our final documents and construction plans (10-15 working days turn around).
Then I believe we will be out of Admin and on the Construction List!!
Is that light I see at the end of the tunnel?
