We’re still planning for an early summer opening and despite appearances to the contrary, we are reasonably on track.
Most of the messy external work was completed in March. This included drains and a package plant, courtesy of Peacock Drains, and stonemasonry by Eilir Rowlands and Aled Jones (not that one). We now have holes in both buildings ready for the Richard to make the window frames and doors for as well as being a lover of bicycles and mud, he is also a fairly competent cabinet maker. Some of his more interesting creations, which may find their way into the cottages, can be found on www.catchweasel.com. Apologies for the blatant advertising.
Towards the end of the month the internal timber frames in the barn and stable were built. Gwyn is now off site for a few days building the timber frame for the extension which will house the entrance and staircase for the barn.
Some pictorial evidence of March’s work….
The most momentous event in March was the arrival of Jac:
Everyone’s work rate has decreased since his arrival but the distraction is a welcome one and I’m not complaining.
