Update for the 7th August, 2020

The Coach House

Building work on the Coach House continued on schedule this week with the focus on insulating and plaster boarding the upstairs interior ready for plastering. As you can see, the fascia has now been painted and the beautiful cast iron guttering and downpipes installed.

There has been detailed re-pointing to the old brick work and the steel tie rods are now in place adding extra strength to the structure.

The windows and door frames arrived this week and have started to be fitted. The Jayflex guys are making this look so easy! We will soon see how the building has regained its former glory when all of the work to exterior is complete and the scaffold can come down.

Weekday Warriors

John has continued to prepare the chimneys and walls by removing the old loose pointing which does need replaced. Tony and Ian have been working on the new guttering and painting the soffits, fascia and guttering black to keep in character.

The guys have placed some sound proofing to the rear corner of The Courtyard above our "Wall of Doors". Hopefully this will make it a little quieter for our neighbours.
