Roof on

The build of the extension is going ahead nicely. We've had the roof go on since I last blogged about it. It's not completely finished yet, still some more bitumen to go on but largely there.

They've also been working on the new drainage system under the foundations so that been some mucky, hard work for them.

More when I have it.

Walls up

The builders have managed to get the walls built up this week, he's really happy with the progress he's making, and so are we.

He thinks he should had the roof on by next week and make it all watertight, so going great guns at the moment.

Pictures of the progress so far below.

Foundations are in!

So it's taken 3 months but the foundations are finally in!

The piling company came yesterday and put in the cages, which you can see below, which have anti-heave under them. It's basically glorified polystyrene. They then proceeded to fill all the trenches with concrete which set overnight.

We had to lock the cats in to make sure we didn't have half a kitty sticking out of wet cement.

Anyway, very happy to have that all out of the way, so onward and upward now with the build!
