3 weeks ago, we told our SS to cancel the plaster installation, which was due on 19 September.  They've now spent the last 3 weeks fixing the defects.  We have the reinspection booked for tomorrow morning with Darbecca and Mr W and our SS will also be there for the reinspection.  Hopefully it is all…

Monday 2 October 2017 – New CSA, clean bricks and still fixing defects
