This week has seen lots of work upstairs and an
Last wall rendered up over the stair well
sparky on site and wires continue to go in
...and the insulation arrives in readiness
and goes straight upstairs the direct route!
the battens go onto the rafters...and insulation is then cut to fit - tricky when each space is not exactly square
the last bit of new gable wall is finished inside
and pointing continues outside the west elevation of the old dairy
a mid-week update on the birdlife....the pied wagtail is still flitting in and out - and the eggs have hatched - difficult to see the bird since it's tucked far back
it's stayed throughout the building work inside the upper dairy loft - amazing!
pointing up continues up all around the building.....just inside the lean-to entrance...
front now finished....guttering left to do
all done on the west elevation of the old dairy
& around the back - the last part of the north elevation on the house pointing is underway
....wrapped up for the night
Thursday morning was glorious - the first red clover in the front meadow
Mike and Jinx can be very pleased that their build of the mitigation accommodation for the swallow has paid off....the swallow has chosen to self-build
the weather boarding on the wash room goes up and around the corner - the thrush sits tight despite the circular saw just in front of the building corner for an afternoon
and over the weekend the pied wagtails nest is now empty - but no photos of young
