No work on Wednesday

Today is the last day of the build.  Lots of finishing off tasks and installing new doors downstairs.  Plumber still to do radiators, and bathroom suite upstairs, but all the external build is now complete.  Here are a few pictures, more to come after the scaffolding is removed.

The outside of the house is all ready for unveiling. The scaffolding should come down next week.
