It has taken 4 and a half months just for us to get notification of passing the first stage at the Central Intake Office, although it seems they do a lot more of the legwork than they used to. Also, London does seem to have got a wriggle on recently since the FSWCat1 caps came into force, so maybe it will be faster at the Visa Office stage now.
I will be sure to update everyone on FSW Cat 2 timescales for post June 26th applications, along with CanadaJimmy who is in the same boat and about a month ahead of us.

Unlike many others, we are not selling our house until the Permanent Residence comes through the door!

To the OP, a word about the timescale. It takes quite a while to go through the process from start to finish - check the footnotes of the posters on this site to see just how long it might take you to become PR. You might be surprised.
I just read your footnote for your OH

TWP at POE 22/8/10

When you say port of entry do you mean at the airport? does this mean your oh left and returned?

It means he got a permanent job offer and his positive LMO and then flew to Canada to start work pretty much straight away after working his 1 month notice in his UK job. When he landed, he went to the immigration officer at the airport with his paperwork and said he wanted to apply for a TWP. He showed them his LMO and job offer letter and they gave him the TWP.
It is called applying for TWP at the Port of Entry.

He didn't come back after that - he went to work!
He has been back for a visit since but other than that he is now resident in Canada as a Temporary Worker.PR is in process now.

Your call of course, you just have to remember that you will only be on a temporary visa until you get PR, and particularly in a trade such as roofing, could be laid off at any time. Construction workers in Canada seem to get laid off with frightening regularity so unless you can get a watertight contract it's quite a risk to take.

You'll spend a lot of that profit getting over there, so what if you have to return after only a few months? I don't know if you can save up over the next year and then rent your house instead which would give you something to return to if needed? JMO of course, but maybe something to chat to your wife about and think about whether it's worth risking or not.

Good luck deciding.
