Work was started on phase 1 of the project which involved raising the roof, building up and over of which was once the kitchen, knocking though door ways, which was quiet a job as the thickness of the walls in these old buildings
The wooden beams replaced where the old ones were rotten as well as roof tiles. Everything that was replaced was like for like.
The builder had been giving me weekly updates and sending pictures regularly on the progress of the work which was good and came to the point that we could not wait for a Fri/Sat when we would receive these.
Since work start we have been out a few times, as the builder wanted us too,so we could to see the work and to make sure all was ok, plus as things move along you can see the shape of how things will look, the sizes of room etc. I feel this is an important time as you can make some changes, do some things abit different, as we did.
Although we went out in March, the morning we arrived at the house there was snow on the ground it was freezing cold, and just started to rain, there was no roof on the house, rubble everywhere, standing on the first floor suryeing the work wet, cold thinking o my god. But the builder said trying to read my thoughts, getting abit worried with the expression I must have had on my face, this is it at its worse state?
He was right. We went out end of May the building is taking shape, with most of the main building work on this phase complete, work will start on phase 2 which is an extension on which use to house the animals.
Looking forward to next stage.
