Some good progress was made in the week before Christmas. Despite quite a lot of snowfall the temperature warmed up considerably and the new concrete floor and tanking system has dried out nicely. The joiner has now started work on framing out the interior including a structural stud wall to give additional support to the roof. The leadwork has also been completed under the coping stones at the top of the roof and the weatherproof, breathable paper has been laid on the roof. A few hundred slates, a door and some windows and we will be watertight! Next update will be mid January 2012.
