Sounds like a good plan to me and you will end up with an excellent lawn. Hard work of course but only needs doing once and like everything in gardening, proper preparation is the key to success.
If you get on with your neigbours and they have better access to their gardens than you do, perhaps you could persuade them to let you temporarily remove a fence panel and barrow the materials in via their garden? A bottle of wine or two might help smooth the path!
