Week 36 – Site Progress!

We have solar panels! And just in time before the scaffolding comes down next week….

To pass the SAP assessment (something all new houses have to meet) we needed to have solar panels, the financial incentives for having solar aren’t what they used to be but our electric bill should go down from around £60 per month to almost nothing, also doing our bit for the environment too 😀

Luckily we could have them down the neighbours side of the roof so they are barely visible from the ground

Plus Dave came and finished off the cills…eek so good to see the bay windows really taking shape

And the stone heads above the front doorway have been done too

So now we can have the openings measured up for the windows woop woop! And luckily the installer can come next week and then it shouldn’t be too long until we are weather tight!

It will be so great to be at a stage in the build in which the weather doesn’t impact progress! Plus we will be doing a lot of the internals so however long things take is up to us really. Nothing wrong with a bit of control ha!

Plus we have been looking at kitchens again and thinking of a bespoke colour which Diy kitchens actually do but that’s for another post!

Brinno time! Week 36


Plus YouTube…
