There are holes everywhere!

This week, Katie got to see the build for the first time. In pouring rain on the way home from the airport, her first impressions were that there were holes everywhere. The weather had cheered up by the time these photos were taken, but that seems to be a pretty good summary of this week’s work…

On the south side of the house, we’re burying the electricity and telecoms cables that currently run to the eaves. This means trashing a beautifully manicured sloping lawn

Building Control also paid a visit this week, but that needs another post…
