Commencement Notice

The Commencement Notice went in yesterday 30th July.

We have had to send in revised drawings of the polishing filter showing new longitudinal and cross section through the filter detailing the existing and new ground levels and invert levels. This is all to do with our waste water system.

We have also sent in the Provisional BER.

We have asked for the 18th August as the commencement date.

Hope it all comes back OK from the council.

The Provisional BER (Building Energy Rating) has been done on the house. Its is done to prove how energy efficient the house is. The rating is an A2 which is very good with yearly usage of 42.2 kW/m2. We hope to reduce this to below 35 kW/m2 when the BER is done on the completed house.

The ESB (Electric Supply Board)  have said that they will be able to get us the electricity supply that we need. The cost is €1807.00 which has been sent.

Full Planning Permission Received

We have received the Full Planning Permission letter from the council.

We now have to send them back the Commencement Notice which gives the council two weeks notice of when we want to start works on site.

The first thing we need to do is to make the access into the site and level out the area around the house for the piling rig to sit on.

We have asked 6 piling company's and 4 ground workers for prices.

We will be deciding very soon.
