Week 35 – Site Progress!

Yes! A productive week after a very quiet week 34!

The roof tilers came on Wednesday and laid out all the tiles ready to put them in place on Friday

And they had the best contraption! A tile conveyer belt. I want one! Or at least to use to send brews up ha!

And Dave, one of the brickies finished off the chimney on Thursday.. what do you think? Love the detailing, we were tempted to get a grey pot but I think the terracotta looks good against the bricks!

It’s so strange walking the dogs and being able to see our house in the distance!

Plus the velux window is in! Our first bit of glass eek!

And with that, we have a roof and it only took them one day! So great to finally have some protection against the weather!

The double height hallway looks so good with the velux window, it’s definitely starting to take shape!

And Dave put some of the cills in as well, all covered at the moment but he will be back in week 36 to put the rest in. Apart from the bay windows, as there is a concern they may get damaged by the scaffolding, as it is coming down next weekend woop! So Dave will come back and put those in. And we will just have the scaffolding set up around the garage ready for the roof.

Once the cills are finished the openings can be measured for the glass YES!!

And the solar panels will also go up in week 36…its all go!

Week 35 brinno time!
