Is there a fee for applying for planning permission?

I've spoken to planning permission and building regulations but they never said anything, but I've been doing a bit of research and I'm not so sure.

We've just finished the footings and poured the concrete in

It's on hold for a while because of financial issues but it's all part of the plan

Nice to see you are now ready to get "out the grund"

Yes it has membrane, and myself two other mates barrowed it in whilst my builder mate took care of the screeding and all that

EDIT: All in all it has a depth of between 4" to 6" all over

Thanks J&K

Digging out those footings was the hardest thing I've ever done

Looking good mate! Anything involving shovels, spades and concrete is always hard work!
I usually hide if there's anything like that! :lol:

You know my various reservations about a shallow, un-reinforced slab without beams on a tamped base and I don't like breeze blocks in ground, so I hope it doesn't crack on you too much. Ah heck I don't want to be negative, good onya for getting that far anyway. Let it cure slowly. Tarp isn't the best cover as it sweats but better than nothing with all the rain lately if you got that there.

Hi all, long time no type!

We have permission off Building Regs, and Planning Department, just waiting on Housing Office now.

How do you tell if a door is left hand hung or right hand hung?

I've looked online and it's seems as if almost everyone has a different way of determining this.

When I stand outside the shed door and facing it, I want the handle on the right side and I want the door to swing outward.

Is that left or right hung?

That can depend on who is describing it - lock/handle/hinge manufacturers sometimes see things differently to others.

If you were to use rising butts for the door you'd have to buy them handed. To determine which hand butts you'd need, stand with your back to the hanging stile of the frame and whichever arm will follow the path of the opening door then that's the hand for the rising butts.

Here is where we are at

We had to stop for about 2 months whilst we waited for the Council to approve our planning permits.

Image

I'm having an 8' patio door as the only entry point.

We've been discussing the roof, it's going to be fibreglass/resin.

Thinking of 8'x4' half inch ply for the roof's boards, but a friend suggested OBS Marine ply

EDIT: The weather has been absolutely gorgeous throughout October
