Hallo Alex, Unfortunately taken in by a glib tongue, a neighbours experience, initially excellent progress through inclement weather I fell at the final act. The project started at £70,000 went through several bonafide changes to a final figure of Approx £95,000, paying cash via bank transfers and the occasional cash in hand. I have kept a diary of events throughout and gave weekly accounts to the builder of payments and budget spend plus budget available. This was through the winter period until 6 weeks ago when labour disappeared together with tools and equipment. I had been paying upfront and the buider gave me a list of requirements for which i payed partially money transfer and the rest in cash. This list has never been supplied and the cash not returned. Plus the build still needs stone cladding and spoil removed from site, the place is a quagmire, unfinished but the builder continues to promise to complete the work without further funding but promises promises. Again he promises to appear this forthcoming Sunday to discuss a partial payment but I have no faith that this will occure Regards John
