Broadrake Bunkbarn - Week 6 17th-21st November 2014

The start of the week saw the back wall external underpinning completed - looking solid

Tuesday this week saw the arrival of the roofing materials, but not quite where we need them
down in front of Bruntscar track

they need to be up behind the trees....

so that's 19 pallets at just under 1 tonne each...

Clearing up of back wall to increase access in readiness for scaffolding meant more mud had to come out, but dumper truck's hydraulic pipe broke - engineer on site to fix it 

Back path now slightly lower at end of Day 26...

but more widening and cleaning up of the back slope progressed for next couple of days....
back level now matches inside level

& finished with gravel chips to give firm surface for scaffolding - looks like fully fitted carpet

 levelled out behind house,
so, yes our lounge remains underground, but is dry so we'll leave that as it is for now!

just a little nervous about the steepness of the bank and what happens when it next rains.....

Around at the east end, levelled out ready for new footings for washroom block
french drain needs to go past bedrock
 'peckering' it out bit by bit
Building control officer paid another visit and was very satisfied with progress

so the end of the week saw the foundations in place more than half-way around, but only able to get pictures in daylight on Saturday morning.....after heavy rainfall....
think we might have to do some bailing out over the w/e and hope for dry days....

 worries about the banking were realised; these will have to be retained eventually


and water also filled up inside as the french drain currently has no way around to the front drain.

so much progress and change on site after another week....new view from the lounge....
 will make an interesting sledge run when it snows.....
