Today was the first time I have been to the new house in AGES when it hasn’t been raining! It was sunny, calm and gorgeous.
We have had a few issues getting the rigid board insulation for the roof and this was starting to threaten to hold things up. Who knew there was a worldwide shortage of rigid board insulation??!! We do now! However, Tom got on it and, with some help from the architectural department at work, managed to find an alternative to the stuff we had hoped to use. Anyway, it got delivered today.
The blacksmith was also in today to finish off the steelwork in the big vaulted window in the kitchen. It’s beginning to take shape and looks ace. I had to leave before they finished.
The roof trusses are finished and sarking boards and insulation is going on tomorrow. Once the Velux windows have been delivered we’ll be wind and water tight. Hoorah! Alan and Michael started on the roof above the bay window too.
We’ve been taking pictures from the same spot on site from day one. It properly looks like a house now. 😊 🏡 Our very own home. ❤️
