Yes friends, we have some very wonderful walls!
Alan and Michael, our
magicians builders, have worked magic and the downstairs walls are up! I was able to take my mum and dad on a FaceTime walk through the downstairs and as I left the last few walls were going up. It looks fantastic.
It was very cool seeing where the front door will be and being able to see the proper views that we will have.

Those are sarking boards through the window BTW, they're for the roof. I learned a lot on site today! At one point I was there with the structural engineer (Tom!), the architect (Scott Ewan) and the builder so I asked a lot of questions. I now know what a cripple stud is, that builders do in fact have a favourite hammer and that architects design gardens as part of the design process.
This time next week we SHOULD have a roof.

Today was a happy house day 🏠🙂
