Week 26 and 27 – Site Progress!

We decided to group the two weeks together as week 26 was a little quiet to say the least. We were waiting until Thursday for the scaffolding to be moved up. Again they kept giving us a date and then not turning up. Obviously we know that all the trades are busy but seriously, why give a date so that you can essentially make plans and then not bother to show! Anyway rant over ha!

However Andy and his uncle were able to do the second set of trusses on the Saturday….

Looking good hey, they were putting them in place from 8am until 5pm, using the torch from Andy’s phone in the end, for light!

Annndddddd week 27 saw the stairs arrive!! Eek! Or craned in shall I say. The crane turned up at 7:30am on Monday and they were all done and dusted by 9am.

I have to admit, I was a little nervous as to what the bottom step would look like, as we had decided to go with something a little different and really frame the stairs. Needless to say we are already very happy and can’t wait to seal and sand them, together with some wood treads when we get to the interiors!

I’m still a little scared going up to the first floor even though we have stairs ha!

Dave, one of the brickies, also came back and did some blockwork of the gables, only one gable left to do now…

Annnddd the roof tiles arrived!! All go in week 27…

Check out one of our past blog posts for roof decisions, with a little more detail, we think these will look so good against the brickwork and the stone and in keeping with the other houses in the area
