Day 185 – Monday 27th 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.
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.
