I have supplied all of the info that the planning enforcement officer requested and now we are waiting for his decision.
Work didn’t stop as advised because I thought the risk outweighed the problem if Tom and the boy’s left the site and started another project.
Work is progressing on the steel and shuttering in preparation for the next concrete pour scheduled for this coming Thursday. The work is slow because of the complication of building a corbel around the basement.
The corbel sticks out 380 mm from the basement wall and must be strong enough to carry the brick façade in front of the timber frame.
