Week30 - 6May 2002

A good week!

The carpenters made very good progress with the North wing roof ready for the tiling
Most of the roof came ready made except for the section below the perlins shown above. The wood was part of the package but needed cutting to size.
Another flint panel completed, only 2 left. Also the brick in-fill around the roof trusses was completed.
After these pictures were taken I gave the exposed rafters their initial (black) staining - much easier before the felt & batten is fitted!
Our first look at the view from the second floor window - this picture does not really do it justice.
The slates (7,000!) arrive.
