Unfortunately, we had a few
problems with the contractor who came along to put in the original concrete
bases for the steel uprights. Not only was the main contractor not aware of the
work that this guy was doing, they also failed to make sure that Building
Control, from the Council, were informed about what was going on. The result
was that the pads did not meet the required standard and so began several

done about it. Eventually, the main contractor agreed with us and the old pads
were removed and new ones were put in place, this time with Building Control
approval. Hooray!!! After all those months of no activity, we now had a start
date. The site needed clearing of the old concrete and other bits and pieces
which was carried out on a Sunday (Whoops. We have apologised to our neighbours).
Then it was all systems go. ...
