Its amazing how quickly things progress once they get started and the eternal rain stops.. Half the building is now water tight and the first section of underfloor heating has been able to go in with the 'floating' floor on top, the dry stone wallers have been doing a fine job of getting the demolished sections of the building back to their former glory, better in some places, and the cottage windows have arrived ready for installation. Meanwhile work inside progresses as the rooms in the barn start to tke shape, it'll be carpets and curtains before we know it!

A week of 1sts

Wed 24 Sep 2008

After being almost one of the first things on site, way back in January, our first skylight has been installed today. This is the first small step in creating the formed roof space for the new building, more challenges ahead I think with all the head scratching thats going on.
