Day 56 – Monday 26th September 2016

Wet day – Work limited to undercover.  Skylight gap previously covered in tarpaulin was recovered with board.  This will be fitted and sealed within the next few days, so should soon be water tight.  Hole was cut for doorway to new bathroom.  Bricks laid to fill gap over new lintel above the new back door.  Old bedroom window now blocked in.  Photos below.
