Day 70 – Friday 14th October 2016
Indoor work today – builder and plumber
Day 57 – Tuesday 27th September 2016
Fibre glass roofing over flat/sloping roof was completed today. Fibre glass roofing was chosen as it is strong and durable and can last for 20 years. It was the ideal solution to cover this kind of roof where all the tiled roofs meet. An expert came out to do the job and it had to be a dry day. There are several layers, the first of which is a fibre glass coated board, then a resin goes on, followed by the fibre glass matting, then more resin and finally a top coat. Photos are shown below.
Also today a mistake was noticed by the double glazing man in the hip above the patio doors when he was measuring, so this needs to be corrected.
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.
