The severe snowfalls experienced before Christmas caused the best part of a week to be lost on site. The planned temporary covering over the roof was not effected and unfortunately this led to the roof trusses being exposed longer than we would have liked to the weather. The temporary roof covering will shortly be installed and allow the drying out to begin.
The rear flat roof of the toilets and buffet are now in a position to accept the specialist contractors to apply the zinc covering.
The buffet chimney stack is nearing completion to cap level in readiness for all the stone chimney caps and pots to be lifted into position with a crane.
Inside, all of the gaps left in the interior walls for ease of movement within the building have been closed up.
The new power cable was due to be installed but has had to be postponed due to the owner of vehicle parked above the connection point disappearing on holiday.
Three GWR style wall light brackets are being fabricated to be mounted on the building with appropriate style lamps.
