Progress this week

The oak beam is cut to size...
and then treated
A retaining wall is then built
Old meets new...
I complete the kitchen floor!
Bev then stains them with Linseed Oil
Satisfying job
The stairs are completed
The Velux surrounds are fitted
The heat store is fitted (the small white tub) this will store hot water when the system does not require it, allowing rapid provision when required

We discovered soon after commissioning that the heat store was completly unnecessary. It remains in place but disconected.

the water softener is fitted
The length of the hot water runs means a circulating pump (yellow) is necessary. This will provide "instant" hot water.
