We have finished lockup AND fixing at the same time, so entering final stage, so am I being ambitious for final stage to be 3 months?

Not yet. We only discovered it at 7 tonight. Not sure if I should contact him about it specifically, considering I shouldn't technically be on site, or if I should…

Yep. Here. Looks like it's meant to be an awning. Wonder if it's just a mix up as there is meant to be a fixed panel window around the corner.

Went to our site today. Think they have stuffed up a window. Our plans state that it is a special style window 21-06A. I assumed this was an awning window.…
