Week 37 and 38 – Site Progress!

Another two weeks have gone by, and wow the time really does fly! Although there hasn’t been much to report from week 37, there has been more progress in week 38 luckily.  Week 37 saw some of the scaffolding come down though yay! which was exciting in itself and a great milestone! I’m pretty sure the scaffolders thought they would tease us however, and just take a little down! But it was a Saturday morning so we’ll let them off ha! And they did set up the garage scaffolding as well so that the brickies Dan and Dave could come back and finish the brickwork and stone heads…

Looking good…

And so that was week 38, and now the garage is ready for the roof trusses which arrived this week as well and we spent our lunch break on Thursday moving them to the garage…took a little maneuvering but they are good to go! Harold actually came and set up the first couple and he should be back week 39 to finish off.

Plus another miracle…at the end of week 38 the rest of the scaffolding came down eek! We actually heard them at around half 7 in the morning on the Saturday, not that we’re complaining obviously! It’s so good to see the house properly, she’s so pretty..and it feels a little less like a site now

Plus the glass and doors have now been ordered, and we should hopefully have them by mid April. We just need to get the garage measured up for a door, potentially a roller sectional one with a wicket door as it links to the utility. AND we will need to take down the porch on the cottage so that the bifolds can be fitted…

As you can see it’s a little tight! And Andy can’t wait to get the hammer out and take it down! Any excuse for a little demolition
