The building continues its upward progress. It does feel like the pressure is on to get the roof on now with winter in the sidelines. We are a little way off this at the moment as the old part of building needs to be sorted before we can think roofs.
In the new part the stonework on the gable end is going up nicely and that will stabilise the block work wall. They have just put in a course of flatter stones above the sun room to facilitate the sun room roof which will come out and house our solar water panels. When we look at this and think what the original plans were like we breathe a huge sigh of relief that we put this sun room in. The only natural light coming into that lounge area would have been from a glass window in an east facing door. It would have been dim and dingy whereas now we will have a bright and airy room.
We are also getting ready for another winter in the yurt. This includes the tweaking of the yurt, replacement of the covers and stacking up of the wood nearby.
