Let's take a step back
Well, the budget report came in and it's not good. After moping about the place for a couple of days, grumbling and muttering about big mortgages etc, what we need to do now is come back to reality. Clearly the way to cut the budget is to use as much of the existing building as we can, as it is. The problem for us is that at the top of our wish list, was high ceilings and this house, being a typical project home from the eighties has flat eight foot ceilings, except in the lounge area, where there is a raked ceiling. So, it's back to the architect to regroup. Before we meet with him though, we need to revisit our brief and see what we can and can’t do without.
