Mum and Dad have pushed me to boiling point! They seem to turn every slightest thing into a problem, they want the most expensive of everything and whatever we decide or choose to do it’s wrong – they know best. It’s driving me mad! We just can’t afford to splash out on things like wooden windows and Karndean flooring, for goodness sake we haven’t even built the place yet. They complain when the builders do anything, Dad has suddenly become an expert structural engineer/architect/project manager and building inspector, he is speaking to people like dirt and it’s horrible. Jez and I are feeling really angry and disappointed and are worried we’ve made a mistake.
That aside, the footings are dug, the foundations in place, it’s built up to DPC and the concrete slab is in.
