Broadrake Bunkbarn - Week 8 1st-5th December 2014

                               Week 8 concentrates on the washroom re-build and storm drains.

The washroom wall continues to rise; levelling and clean up of the floor area helped remove the constant trail through mud....

Digging  storm drain route to go across driveway to the existing drains

 back corner continues upwards....
by Day 36 wall has now reached lintel level

on back and side walls

A cold and frosty start to Day 37 with sunshine on Whernside ridge - a perfect day

Double skin walling with insulation pegged to inner wall

 Thank you Toddy, for continuing the photographic record to Day 37 

 supports going in for removal of old headstones and wooden lintels - unfortunately current building regs require concrete lintels that extend further over widened door openings, so the old door heads cannot be re-used.....:(

walling continues up to 6 courses with insulation

 By the end of Week 8, the final scaffolding is in place with platform at front for pallets of roofing. We can now apparently go up and walk all around at eave level.......

Down below, more supports in preparation for the door head stone removal, which will be tricky and will wait until the start of next week

......distracted with the first winter flurry of sleety snow mid-afternoon

                    but later the sun returned to fall upon the Whernside ridge behind Broadrake

by the end of Week 8, side wall is up to 2m, ready for front walling next week

& finally, as temperatures fall in clear skies, moonrise to the north of Ribblehead Viaduct
