My Flat Pack Home Is being erected TODAY

Emilyn & Hugo sitting on our walls... we will never again be able to do this. :)

As I type I can hear the work men outside... on any other day i would find it annoying & irritating Today though is a totally different story....
This is the story of my Flat Pack Home.
Brought to you By ME BusyBee.... 
Brought to me By Homelodge.
Our house being delivered this morning 8 am

Why we chose Homelodge
We took weeks & months of deciding where & what company to go with. 
We tallied it down to two Companies of which we liked the look of both lodges & they seemed quite similar in price. 
We arranged a Free Quotation & site meetings all the way back in July 2012, As Mic is at work a lot, I was the one to do all the meetings (With the little people) it was chaos i wont lie.
We had our first appointment with a Company *I wont name* as I found the site manager cold & in a rush... he didn't ask any major questions as to how many bedrooms, or our price limit, I just didn't warm to him. 
We had the quote & it was well over priced & just not what we had imagined...

This is our plot of land very long but thin.

We then had Homelodge round & after the first Company i was a little apprehensive to say the least.
But it was a wonderful meeting, The Owner was fabulous & we had the afternoon talking about what we needed as a family, we looked at the land where we wanted the build & it all seemed perfect.
It took a good few months to get the ball rolling & we changed the layout round a few times.
They are based down in Winchester so we visited the site a few times & had a look at their Showhome lodge.... I suppose it does look a bit like fancy expensive shed/garden room. 
believe me it is much more than this... the benefits of the lodge specially Eco living is amazing & cost of heating a year should be under £500 easily.
We have literally picked everything ourselves down to positioning of light switches & plug points, The kitchen is fully picked by us & we have gone with a lovely breakfast bar i the middle of the kitchen, 
Do I sound excited? I totally am! This is i suppose a bit of a dream come true for us. 
It takes just 8 hours to get the house up (basic) no windows or doors but the structure will be up.
Mic will have a shock when he gets home from work as it just looked like this...
