Let there be structural steel!

Thankfully it has been sunny so far this week and our builders have been enthused to catch up on the delays caused by the horrible torrential rain we had last week. With any luck (fingers crossed!) they will have started the timber framing by the weekend. Exciting!

Structural steel supports for the ground floor
Check out how huge those beams are! There is only one internal structural wall in the whole extension so they have to be pretty hefty to hold up the second story. I know I keep on saying it, but it's really amazing how it is coming together, with every little step it makes it so much easier to visualise the space.

We made a few tricky decisions over the weekend, managing to choose some of the tiles for the bathrooms and the kitchen splash back, as well as finalising our choices as far as windows and external doors are concerned. I've had some headaches over the windows, but I think we're set now. Here's hoping! Stay tuned for more construction updates.
