Week 12 – Site Progress! Plus the first 3 months timelapse!!

More blockwork this week, going up to first floor level, it is deceptively high! Our ceiling height is 2.415 which is a little higher than standard but still…and obviously the floor levels will differ to now, it does feel high though! And I’m not complaining

Love love love our exposed brick wall! We are so glad we decided to go with it

Its definitely getting high now, and one of the brickies has made a start on the fireplace…

The chevron pattern works so well, we plan on going almost to ceiling height and having it all open, however we will probably have a concrete lintel and maybe a pattern of bricks just above it rather than go all the way up to ceiling as it will impact the walk in wardrobe upstairs

We have also made some decisions this week on stone cills and heads which I will go into in a little more detail, now that we have samples, on another post.

Another big decision, we are able to go with double height in the hallway! The partial glass floor we were going to go with was abit of a compromise but now we can go with our favourite option…again watch out for more details on this!!

We have done a 3 month timelapse with our brinno tlc2020 (gifted), and tlc200 camera…..
