Day 141 – Thursday 26th January 2017 – phase 2

Day 141 – Thursday 26th January 2017 – phase 2

A very important day for the build – the huge new steel beams lifted into the correct position, more scaffolding going up, a 2 day job with 4 men to create a canopy right over the house, which will mean that work is not so weather dependent and the house will be more protected when the roof comes off.  Also from phase 1, air vents over flat utility room roof going in, to try and allow air to flow and to stop build up of condensation.
