Ground Workers

We received the first offer from a ground working company yesterday.  We were expecting to be able to work out the total cost from this but as things were listed by cubic meter or per hour it was impossible.  We think we will need to spend about 10% to 20% more than we expected but we can't really be sure.  Today we called up some other companies to ask for quotes and have some meetings and site viewings lined up over the coming days.

The benefit of the first company we already have the quote from is that they are also the company that prepared the site and they have permission to spread the earth they dig up from our plot on to other plots where earth is missing.  This should save us money on the earth disposal costs that can add up quickly.

Ing-DiBa paid the land costs today so we are now well and truly committed.  It's all starting to feel a bit more real now.
