So after the soffits and guttering went up, our neighbour quite rightly pointed out they protruded significantly across the boundary.
I was pretty mortified at this, and so our building manager was out in the pouring rain trying to rectify it before the roofing guys came the next day.
Sadly after this the guttering was still completely past the painted line on the wall. The roofing guys were put back a day, the guttering sorted, and now we have an acceptable finish! Phew..
I think we can expect some significant progress in the next week – windows, roof and render!
