The drains are in their locations, though still need to be buried in places. The four massive green timbers are extra supports for large floor areas and for internal structural walls. Each is a sandwich of two enormously heavy timbers of a non-standard size. Engineers love non-standard sizes apparently. Why??
Pat and I drove with our big trailer to Garstang, Lancashire to the only timber yard in Christendom which could supply them. They were treated overnight, fitted today and will be bolted to each other on Monday with huge countersunk coach bolts at 300mm centres seemingly. Just to add to the fun on Monday the Building Inspector calleth.
Hoping to place an order fo windows on Monday too subject to Building Inspector advice. Then we should be weatherproof in three weeks.
The walls should fly up, the immensely strong and level floors providing a superb work platform for them and the roof if all goes to plan.
