Slating is progressing but there have been a few delays for the occasional torrential rain showers. The roof is nearing completion and looking rather good.
All of the brickwork is now complete around the master bedroom, the new porch and the back side of the kitchen. The rough brick surfaces will now be covered with a smooth harl and finally painted to match the painted stonework of the original cottage. The cedar cladding is also nearing completion and just waiting for some final rain flashing around the bathroom window before the last cladding can be installed. The garage door is installed and the house can now be locked up although there are still some swallows flying in and out through the gap above the sun room windows. Inside the house, the under-floor insulation is in place and we are getting ready to lay the pipes for the underfloor heating. You can see the underfloor heating schematic on the plans page.
