Week 5 building update

Things moved fast this week, the next layer of concrete was poured Tuesday afternoon, and you can read about it here on Jen’s blog – http://jenbeads.wordpress.com/2014/03/25/home-renovations-part-2/ with several pictures. Easier to do that than do the same on here

(If the link didn’t work for you, try removing   http:/  before the jenbeads in the address)

Once the scaffolding was off, you could get a better idea of what the building was going to look like inside, and how big.

A slight re-calculation on door placement meant cutting out a bit of wall

After the lovely sunny afternoon for the concrete, the weather changed and we had several days of mizzle (misty drizzle), not enough to stop work but you could feel the moisture everywhere.
Anyway, by the end of the week everyone was walking a couple of inches higher carrying clay under their boots

By Friday, the window frames and roof line for the study and storeroom were in place, and some of the flooring had arrived – to left of picture below.

Floors happen this week I think, which will make it easier to work on scaffolds on a firm flat surface instead of the uneven dirt base at present.

There’s been  no rain over the weekend so far, and we hope it continues that way.  I know everyone wants lots of autumn rains, which would be nice if there was one big umbrella sitting over Flowerpot!

Keep smiling :-):-)
