The fence has been moved back to the roundabout at the entrance to the crescent and the green in the crescent has been fenced off as if the first row in there is ready to be handed over. There's a lot of tarmac down as well. Hard to tell how much progress on the houses because you couldn't see in this far before. All but 1 of the houses in the fairways are up to ridge level. Christmas completion does not look impossible.
My viewing went ok. First fix finished. Plasterboard next week. Lucky I went down. Plumber missed something serious I request and reminded him of 4 times. I would say the crescent will be finished end of year. That means snag another month, and paperwork another two week. So handover by mid feb.
Yes they are expensive but so is every other site. It would be a lot more expensive to do things after. I would say though that we are lucky in castlerock with the subcontractors. The Elec subby gives you opportunity to change. Some main contractors would allow you do that.
Fingers crossed we are all settled in our new homes by the summer anyway.
