We bought the book and we were hooked; we could do this. I am in management, my wife is a superior organizer and we just have the drive to finish things out. So we figured, what the heck, let's do it.

Robert did a great job with the glass block, and quickly too. Such a shame the shower block has to still be done!! I took the photos yesterday (Monday 25th June) as Sunday it was raining cats and dogs in the afternoon.

The framers turned up (plus a team) and are setting to on the trusses and internal framing. I am about to go up to the land as Rupe reports it is coming on really quickly and we want to set to on the plugging before it all dies!! No way can I see they will be out before Wed/Thurs, but we shall see. Three weeks is still good and other than communication needs to improve, and a pinch of salt needs to be taken with all promises,  I have no complaints with the framers and at the moment would definitely use them again.

Unfortunately a dodgy tummy and a definite preference for home conveniences over the onsite toilet have got me posting and staying at home, for the moment!!!

I have included some pics of the girls and internal framing as it was yesterday. It looks like a mass of wood at the moment.

We selected our roof shingles yesterday and have lots of samples at home!!! We are leaning towards the Certainteed 30-year Landmark fungus-resistant Resawn Shake at the moment, as to us the red looks naff in our opinion unless it is tile and it is a lighter option for the colours we want. Remember we want the Mediterranean look. I will follow this with the positions pictures with the glass block, and just for you Dad, we were at the visitors centre yesterday to ask them something and saw this vintage car and thought you would appreciate the photos. You don’t see many “horseless carriages” in this neck of the woods!!!
