The weather was much improved and the guys were able to get down to work without interruption.

I’m pleased to say that my neighbours fence panels and paving slabs have been re-instated. They have been very patient with us and the temporary incursion into their garden.

A days worth of assembly and we now have the framwork for the roof glazing in place. We also have the guttering around the perimeter along with a large box gutter which will serve both the conservatory as well as collect rain water from the house roof. None of this will be visible once the cornice work is installed. Planned for the next day or so.

With the roof framework in place the final size and shape is becoming clearer.

Conservatory Re-Build – Day 10


As usual the guys were here good and early to finish off the last few runs of brickwork. And after such a beautiful weekend the weather decided to welcome them back to work with good old British drizzle.

Apparently we won’t be seeing any workers for the next day, or two, to allow the mortar to go off.

Then on Thursday they will be back to fit frames and roof …..  Whoohoo !!!
