Day 184 – Friday 24th March 2017 – phase 2

Into the final stages now as the outside is nearly finished with just vents and guttering to be completed.  Inside the staircase will be finished next week and some new doors, which are extras to the build, will be fitted.  Today 3 bat boxes were fixed into position as required by our bat licence.
