Conservatory Re-Build – Day 12


Yesterday, rain stopped play before the guys could make much headway. Today started with much optimism but this turned out to be somewhat misplaced as although the day started dryish it soon became too wet to work. By 11:00 the guys had knocked it on the head.

Luckily the rain held back long enough for the concrete to be laid inside the conservatory walls. This will provide a flat surface for the sleeper wall and eventually the suspended wooden floor. In the following photo you can just see where they have infilled at the base of the walls.

After mixing and laying the concrete the guys started preparations to reinstate my next door neighbours fencing. Rain stopped this work from completing.

The three window frames have been installed in the north end wall and the wall capping has been laid down but the rain turned up the intensity before the guys could start on the roof proper.Conservatory - North end window frames are in. External view.

With the frames in you can begin to get a feel for the final look of the north end.

My wife and I now have our fingers crossed that the weather is going to be kind and the guys can crack on when they return on Monday.
