Week 17 – Site Progress!

Well…we were expecting the rest of the scaffolding on Monday so that brickwork could continue however they didn’t turn up until Thursday and so we lost another week of brickwork! But onwards and upwards as they say, blockwork will continue in week 18 up to first floor yay!! And we can now see just how close the scaffolding is to the house…luckily being short pays off…

Andy spent some time on the weekend moving more blocks and bricks onto the scaffolding to save some time

We also received the stone heads, however they sent the wrong stone. We actually ordered grey but Portland Stone was sent by mistake. Obviously this would have caused delays, however after a little playing around with photoshop to visualise the colour differences, we actually prefer the lighter option so it has worked out well!

Every cloud…

And we had delivery of a sliding door, to check out the quality..but that’s for another blog post! Watch this space
