Tuesday 5 December 2017 – Pre-Inspection Jitters

Inspection tomorrow and I'm feeling a bit anxious about it. I trust Darbecca completely but so far every time we get one of their inspection reports it shows so many defects and I get so angry at Bentley.¬† I'm expecting any blog post tomorrow to focus on the report, so I thought I'd share a…
