All in a day’s work!

As you can see from the photos below there has been quite a dramatic change since yesterday! A team of half a dozen bricklayers turned up this morning and together they soon made light work of erecting the basic shell up to roofline height. It’ll be quiet now for the next few days as they need to let everything set.

A big thank you this time goes to Debbie, who in between making coffees for the bricklayers, was kind enough to pop outside occasionally to take a few pictures on her camera. In this fashion I was able to keep an eye on the progress even though I couldn’t be there in person. Unfortunately it turned out that those particular pictures were not up to the usual technical standard that I post, so after the builders had left I asked Debbie to take a whole new sequence of pictures (on my camera this time) and it is these that you can see below. I wish I had done this to start with so you could see how quickly it was taking shape. Oh well, at least we got some good pictures in the end.

And finally…

It looks like those guards of mine have got wind of the building work going on (I knew we couldn’t keep it quiet for very long) and have their own ideas on how it will be used!
