The roof is finished(31May09)

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

The roof is finally finished so it shouldn’t be long until the scaffolding is gone. I have put up some guttering as it is a lot easier to put up from a scaffold tower than dangling off a ladder!?á Peter and Josh have also assembled the stairs – we just need to make a platform for a landing half way up…….

There are quite a few nests at the site – the tits are nesting in the wall and by the gate and swallows have nested in the barn and cottage.

Because the stone work does not give a straight edge along where the slate trim joins we need to have a thin strip of render. It doesn’t look as good but should seal the roof to the stone.

The roof is progressing – today the whole of the rear of the house was finished – it looks great, but can’t wait to see it with the rendering finished and the scafolding removed.

At the front, a section of Rendering is complete and also looks great.

Lots of windows….all the rear windows and the patio doors were fitted today – they look great.
All the remaining windows will be sash windows to comply with the planning conditions.
