On the Home Straight

And it feels like we are going full gallop.

For the first time Brian and I can do something practical: as soon as the team plaster a wall, we have been painting them. Although, having decided to make all the walls and ceilings white, we are getting rather snow-blind. 

So it was a pleasure to take advantage of being up a step ladder and open one of the roof-light windows to catch a glimpse of the boats moored on the River (the slate roof in the foreground is our garage).

Pictures for Kate

As the project continues, I am on-site several times a day, every day. We are all rather focused on the work going on inside the house and I have stopped taking pictures of the exterior. This is also changing daily as the rendering is starting to be applied.

Recently, Brian has been working on the mainland in the week and is delighted by the progress when he comes home - and it really is starting to feel like a home.

Lovely to see the ladder replaced with a staircase at last. Although still work in progress this makes getting upstairs a lot easier.

So here's a rather blurry selfie: sitting at the foot of our stair.

... Out like a Lamb.

Mid-March and all is calm and Spring like.

Even Brian seems relaxed in our temporary tea-room (eventually the TV room).

In like a Lion...

March arrives with blustery winds and rain; but onsite, our army of subcontractors are not at all deterred.
A steady stream of materials are delivered and there are rarely less then three vans parked outside.

Is our SIPs Structure sound?

As we start to schedule more work on the exterior of the building, issues arise with the way it has been put together. Have we made a terrible mistake by relying on Low Carbon Construction?
