    Well basically i am designing myself, funding myself, getting the builders, getting all the equipment. I think MND when applied to government means Must Not Donate!!!

    Thanks Fru for your input, very helpful

    Morning Christoff
    I converted garage to form a wet room and store . Very similar job to yours 17000 was total cost of project including ramp driveway to front and decking at rear to give level access . Garage roof was shot so I put a pitch roof on with velum lights . Almost forgot I had to increase width of two doors and move gas meter .IMG_0611.jpg

    Hi, we are having a bit of quiet time after having our wet room done. I will try to post a picture... Also we had a roof put on our conservatory to give us extra living space. DSC_0033 (1).jpg

    Hi again, We are going to be living downstairs very shortly I think. The house is covered in dust. Ed has his first wheelchair assessment next week, our OT put the request in last April. We are self funding so we are having to work to a priority list. We think we are doing okay.
    Best wishes to you all

    Well we are having a time with our application, apparently the front extension may not sit in with the street scene! I have looked at the documentation and it all looks very subjective. Also we are at the top of a cul-de-sac and no direct roads passing us. Our street isn't a set of box houses where a front extension would look out of place....honestly i give up sometimes, this condition is hard enough to cope with without the added bonus of jumped up little officienados putting a spanner in the works.. i will await the decision imminently

    Hi Christoff

    I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with your application. We would be very happy to write a support letter regarding your application if it would be helpful?

    We often write support letters for a variety of situations as it can sometimes help to explain more about MND and it's impact and how something such as an adaptation can improve someone's quality of life.

    We can't promise that it will make a difference but it's certainly worth a try. Please do let me know if you think this would be helpful and we can discuss it in a bit more detail.

    Best Wishes

    Rachel

    Hi christoff
    Don't forget it's not planners who pass plans it's councilors . Your in a very strong position find out who is in planing committee and email them all . Get support letter off Rachel and when they come to see you explain why u need to extend front . I know it's a pain in the bum but I will be amazed if you loose . You need to get everything to gether and put your case . Good luck mate
