B-Day+29: Floored!

We now have a floor – the concrete slab was finished today.

Can’t really get outside to take photos, so here’s one from the upstairs window (not the most exciting photo I’ve taken!)

Update: Risked walking on the new floor this morning – I didn’t sink so got a couple more photos:

B-Day+15: New foundations and a new Prime Minister

So Gordon Brown has just resigned so I think we are in limbo without a PM for a few minutes, hopefully nothing goes wrong!

Equally important is that we have a full set of foundations.  The massive truck arrived this morning…

And filled the trenches…
