The morning saw me finish the quilt top:
In knitting news I've finished the third section of the shawl, but as it looks the same as before no photo, will start the final section tomorrow when there are no children to distract me as row 86 is supposed to be challenging.
I've also started the round toe for my sock, but like the shawl you can't really see any change yet; hopefully tomorrow it'll be finished too and I can cast on its mate.
Did a bit of measuring and diving into information from our insurance and mortgage files. I've determined that even with the covered deck, house, kids play hut and the new garage building we will still be under the 40% section coverage we're allowed under local laws, so that's good. That's only taking into consideration the part of the section that is buildable, we can't count the bit that goes to the street apparently so I haven't.
Tomorrow we have our second building company coming to have a look, then we will decide who we're going to use for the job. I'm pretty sure the garage will be subcontracted so I'll need to get quotes and drawings for that fairly urgently. I've got a couple of recommendations for that part, one of the companies we looked at last time made too many errors in their quote (double the number of double-glazed windows for example) so we won't be going back to them. Rather exciting really!
