Week 15 – Site Progress!

There hasn’t been a great deal going on this week, as we are waiting for the scaffolding…Still waiting as I write this! And so the brickies have been able to pretty much complete the bay windows brickwork and are now up to first floor height!

Fingers crossed the scaffolding will arrive early next week so that they can get cracking with the first floor!

We have also been thinking about the glass and requesting quotes this week. We need to achieve a u/value of 1.2 which is pretty low for a new build and so its probably best to make these decisions sooner rather than later

Eximiaglazing.co.uk kindly left a sample of their aluclad system for us to look at. This is a timber frame with aluminium on the outside, however we are also quite taken by the flush uPVC available…we will do a more detailed post once we’ve done a little more research and made some decisions!

Check out our Instagram post though with other people’s comments and suggestions! We do love Instagram for this, it definitely is helping us along the way with our decisions

It’s timelapse again….the time really does fly! Camera gifted from Brinno, the tlc2020 camera
