    It was easy I made myself do a month end round up.

    Seeing as I did fuck all work because you know covid it meant I was actually able to sit down at the end of the month and put a big fat 0 in all the columns on my spread sheet.

    Plus if we were allowed outside, so I could talk to grown ups instead of my children, and I was actually able to do work I knew that the government would fuck things up in such a way that I'd soon have plenty of time to do my taxes whilst sitting at home trying to stop my kids from fighting - or hiding from them fighting by doing my taxes.

    Nah, call 999 and pretend there's a fire when the fire brigade get there feign ignorance and ask to borrow the jaws of life.

    Well I realise that I'm tempting fate here but my architect and I managed to finally get through to the planning officer last week.

    He likes the scheme.

    He sees no reason for it not to go ahead.

    The decision will be made by him not the planning committee.

    Non of our neighbours are objecting.

    He was wondering seeing as he was supposed to make the decision ~ 4 months ago if we could possibly agree to extend that deadline until now + 2 weeks thankyouplease.

    It looks like all systems are go giving us a decent amount of time to get building regs approval and find a supplier for the gluelam frame SIPS and other structural elements. I was hoping to start this summer but have been told, in no uncertain terms, by Mrs Bobbo that that would be too soon as we want to preserve most of the front garden as much as possible so next spring it is. On the plus side hopefully the cost of ply etc will have come down by then.

    Another option would be to see if cutwrights can cut the mitres with cnc'd dowels for you they're pretty accomodating and it would all depend on if their machines can cut the bevel. With their range of boards you should be able to get a decent match.

    Edit - Would be more than 35 a set but could come in close if you can get a good number from a single board.
