Week 5 – Site Progress!

Week 5 saw the signing off of the concrete slab woop! and we are on budget woop woop! The additional costs of moving drainage pipework and filling an old underground tank with concrete were cancelled out by the labour cost savings of the work we have done ourselves.

Check out the final prep for the concrete slab and the pouring of the concrete, with our Brinno camera..

And the manual labour…moving blocks again at the end of the week…

Week 6 is pretty quiet, as the builders are elsewhere all week. Probably a good job as we have had so much rain. Just the bricks arriving, which is exciting as we haven’t seen our furness ember blend bricks properly yet!

Youtube time…….
