15. Interlude

Not much has been happening on the building front this week, I've been far too busy visiting my wife in hospital, who gave birth to baby Thomas on Wednesday.

Mom and baby are doing fine and should be out of hospital soon, all being well. Which means I need to get back to work so that Thomas can have his own room when he's a bit older...

14. A floor and a roof

The hangers are now bricked in, giving me chance to install the floor joists for the bedroom extension.

Meanwhile, the scaffolders are back to install the final lift.

This allows the brickies to complete the brickwork...

...and me to install the wallplate ready for the roof to go on.

Two days work from the carpenter sees the extension roof complete. Which would probably have taken me two weeks. Money well spent.
