Meeting confesseurs

Hi @reef-full
Given the latest development and the high probability that we might be buying a site sometime shortly, our confesseurs have asked us to meet them again. Can you please indicate your preferred options in a poll:

  • I can meet confesseurs in person in Saturday, 27 April
  • I can meet confesseurs in person on Sunday, 28 April
  • I am not available next weekend, and prefer to meet them online this week

Thanks @ugne !
Now that this is happening, I’m going to reply to the email thread you set up with us and Marcel to say that we can meet them in person on the same day as everyone else.
Can we request to be the last meeting on the 28th, or have a slightly longer scheduled time with them, because our situation is a bit complicated, and we have quite a few things to sort out…

OK, another try with a poll that shows results:

  • I can see confesseurs in person on Saturday, 27 April
  • I can see confesseurs in person on Sunday, 28 April
  • I can not see confesseurs in person next weekend and prefer an online call

For the record, on the 27th there is a sociocracy/facilitation training in the morning, a Team Building meeting in the afternoon…

If one of the two meetings would be canceled that Chris mentions above, Saturday would work for me too

ok, so it seems we have to go for Sunday or online (for those who can’t on Sunday)
@mieke ; @Sophie_B is Sunday an option for you?

It is an option depending on the time. I am free before 11 am or after 4 pm

Ok, let’s see then. I booked the Brutopia room on Sunday from 12:00 to 17:00 but let’s see how many people are available and if possible, will put you like Chris & Sarah at the end.



I’m not in Brussels this Sunday but if it’s possible to have a meeting at the end of the day (also around 5PM) I could manage to come back :raised_hands:

Let me check, as we might not be that many and finish earlier. In this case, it will be an online meeting this week. Please think of a few timeslots that can fit you & Caro. Thanks!

hi @reef-full

@alberto & @RichardB , I will write to you separately, so we can arrange the online call with Marcel this week, if possible.

Hi @reef-full

Important message from Marcel (our confesseur) regarding the meeting with him in terms of PREPARATION:

"It is important that this time everyone has very concrete information regarding the financial plans: how much do they want to spend, how much do they have and what is the approved solution by a bank, le fonds de logement or immotheker".


Alberto and Els are working on an Excel template resp. on financial means and on wishes.

@alberto and @els could you please put your file(s) in the “estimations and scenarios” folder and leave a link in this thread? TIA!

Hi all, (@reef-full )

I made a simulation file based on the most recent calculation we received from the architects and the file you probably allready use to calculate your size and price of your appartment.
So with this file, you can calculate:

  • the size of your apartment/studio
  • indicate the price of the finishing you have in mind (default is 750 euro/m2)
  • indicate the options you want to have (i calculate the private cellar and terrace at the real price, so including all vat, fees,…)

And as outcome you will get

  • a total minimal price, including a 10% margin
  • a total average price, including a 10% margin
  • a total maximal price, including a 10% margin


Waw @els! That’s beyond impressive, thanks so much!
