Things will start moving again this week, after the works had come to a bit of a standstill. The main builders are done, crane is gone, place has been cleaned up, I had scaffolding installed inside to serve as a staircase.

Now I must wait for the carpenter to start working on the roof structure. I’ve had scaffolding installed at the front so that they can work safely on the roof. I got a call today that they’ll start this Thursday! Finally! I had hoped they’d put in the windows too before the construction holiday in July (that’s three weeks of no construction anywhere), but that’s not going to happen, unfortunately. That’s the disadvantage of having so many different contractors. Planning it all is hard work.
