Week Three . . . . An early start.
7 am no less, due to a fine forcast.
Cutting and punching 2nd hand Honister slates
bought from Graythwaite Farm recently. They should match well.
Early Morning turned to day, making the electricity redundant.
Size-ing, cutting, and punching the slate, ready to be nailed in place.
(We now have a "gortex type" breathable roof lining underneath the tiles - very posh)
Final Fix, selecting and fixing the slate in position.
The Gas Man Cometh . . . Two bottles please !
Inside, the loft bedroom takes shape.
Richard working in a noisey environment, hence the ear protectors.
Wiring emerges through every wall.
Working late last evening meant the kitchen was one step nearer being clear,
ready for our next deadline . . Mon Dec 2nd . .(I hope the Electricity Board can move the meter by then)
Home from a had days work to find two less light bulbs working and no back door.
Good job I'm in control . . . I am in control . . . aren't I ???
Cutting in the socket boxes, and generally enjoying making a mess.
Couldn't move for workers at one point . . . builders, electricians, and house alarm guys
End of the day tidy up !!! (After the event, believe it or not )
Home from a hard day's work Friday . . . to find . . . no sink, no cooker, no ceiling lights,
Still, managed a meal, and I'll wash up in the bathroom
Sorry - no chance
But the bedroom cieling looked nice ! !
Saturday was showery, with occasionally sunny periods - Views from the finnished roof.
Found these on the camera - A rainbow over the skip - a good luck omen ?
That was the week that was.
End of Week Three
