8.0 – Sunflowers!

Our eighth meeting and our struggle with the trains continues. Progress on the house ticks along with numerous bits and pieces coming together. The inside is being transformed.

7.0 – Windows, Doors, and Water Tight

With two invoices since our last visit, we expected windows and doors. What we found was much more. The house is now water tight and the garden is blooming.

6.0.1 – Starting the Roof

Less than a week after our last house visit, we were back for a site meeting with the project manager. The roof trusses, which were waiting on site last week, are now up, and it is an amazing transformation.

6.0 – The Roof Begins

The roof has begun. We learn more than usual in our latest site meeting. Details about tiles, electrics, and the telephone connection all become clear.

5.2.2 – We Made It

After all our transport troubles, we didn’t get much time at the house this visit. As always, the progress continues, and we are excited afresh each time.

5.2.1 – Transport Troubles

With worsening train strikes, the search was on for an alternative means of getting to the house. For this visit we tried the bus instead, but soon encountered other problems.

5.2 – Misdirection

Continuing trains strikes prompt our trying a new route to reach the house. We try taking the bus instead of the train. Our day does not go entirely to plan.

5.0.1 – Up, up, up

The house is progressing so quickly that every visit offers an exciting surprise. For this site visit we got to go upstairs and look around for the first time.

5.0 – First Time Upstairs

The first floor has appeared. For the first time we got to see the views from our windows. This was only our fifth meeting with builder on-site.

4.2.1 – An Enclosed Space

Our latest visit to the house was just for fun. There was no meeting with the project manager, we just wanted to see it.
