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.

Day 132 -Tuesday 17th January 2017 – phase 2

Tile removal today, on both sides of the house and middle parts, supervised by the bat licenced ecologists as we have a potential for bats.  On an earlier survey we were told we must have a bat licence as transitionary bats were spotted.  No bats or evidence of bats was found.  Electrician also at work today in the roof space, sorting out wiring, a major task.
