OK...I had a break from the story so far, as I was involved in a 2-day corporate audit on the 'day job' project. I'm frazzled, but we did OK.
To make up for it, I will draft up the tale of the lease next and try to post that tomorrow, Then we will get into the design route to the final plans.
In the Middle East, the day off is Friday, and this week we also have a Muslim-related day off for something or other, so a nice 2 day weekend ahead. Normally its a 6 day 10-hour/day week here minimum, starting on site at 7am - they don't give these massive tax-free salaries away for nothing anymore, y'know.
I am on with organising (through the Chief negotiator) that fill material so that it can be placed when we go back in May.
