Have they said who's responsibility the repair is?

Northern electric charge 1500 a joint (or so I've been told I've never actually saw the invoice)

If they do it live btw try and watch. It will make your bollocks tingle just watching it haha

No. We are going to try and argue it's a random cable that's not supplying anyone. I'm sure the guy who build a garage next door must of gone through it as its heading in that direction

Isn't it quite clear cut you have gone through it? If it's a cable owned by the grid your fucked. Did no one think of used a cat scanner before piling holes?

I don't think you should foot the bill anyway. Should go to the people driving the pilings I would think.

Any pics of it arcing?

The cable looks intact still maybe we could argue that the metal water pipe clipped it when it was chewed up by the auger

The garage is being built on the end of a cul-de sac in line with the road and a garage next door. We are well clear on the housing line and path line

No pics I'm staying well clear

Almost done. Electrics capped just a unknown cable with no load.
Cup of tea for the digger guy and he opened up the other end of the hole for the water pipe
Just waiting on plumber now but at least I know services are just below the side of the garage just waiting to be tapped into

Got a letter through from UK power networks basically asking who damaged the cable and who wants to pay. No mention of costs. After doing a quick search looks like we will have to pay

Almost ready for concrete. First up the claymaster polystyrene

Then today the first of two layers of reinforcing mesh

But they were heavy and difficult to get over the piles

Ramp done up to the slab

Used an engine crane to plant the tree in the corner

Just got the first quote to do the brick work
2800 seems a bit steep that doesn't include the bricks

I'm interested on the full build cost.

Contemplating building a second garage at my house in the near future and knocking the current garage through to increase our living space.

Mine will probably be 15k but I'm just paying as I go doing as much of it myself. The pile foundations cost 4k so I guess normal foundations would be a lot cheaper
