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.
