Tuesday 22nd March

OK, this was kind of my fault, but we messed up the roof steel. When the architect drew up the initial drawings, we asked for some minor changes internally. He did these and gave us a new set of plans. Unfortunately, when the builders arrived on site I had given them the first set of plans thinking that the only changes were minor internal ones. Unbeknownst to me, there was also a major change in the size of the ridge beam. The builders had already ordered it, so we had to bear the cost of that and hope that it can be resold. Unfortunately, the new one is much larger and expensive too.
When it arrived 5 of us tried to move it for an hour or so. We reached the alley.
The crane arrived the following day, swung it into place in about 10 minutes and disappeared.

The roof has been going on, leaving the holes for the Velux roof windows.
