It’s a great feeling to see the project move forwards again. Our builder John and colleague made short work of the block and beam. They used Walter Bailey for some of the materials a well known local builders merchant in Par who managed to squeeze their delivery truck down along our back lane.
Much discussion was had at this stage re insulation and heating. Immediately putting John in direct contact with Paul Nicolson our electrician/plumber, was a good move and quickly they were coordinating the exact order of events. Air source under floor heating is the current plan because although it will cost more to install than say electric underfloor pads, the renewable tariffs will more than make up for the outlay over time.
Next the sole plate and then we go vertical!
