Week 1- The A Team

Week 1- The A Team

Day 2

After the euphoria of starting the project it is now down to the practical task of trying to convert a 150 year old stone farm building into 21st century luxury holiday accommodation.

To help with the sympathetic renovation of the barns we have enlisted the help of a great couple of guys. Phil and Dean will be on hand to help with all stages of construction and to tell me where I am going wrong!!

The first task we undertook was the stripping of most of the roof off and the demolition of the unsafe walls. We knew the walls may need a bit of work but it became quickly apparent that the structural instability was worse than expected, so half of the walls had to go.

As the walls have had to be pulled down building control now require the new walls to be put back as a cavity wall faced in stone, to comply with the latest Building Regulations. This makes the construction of the walls much easier and will help with achieving the required U value.

Day 3

The weather has been a little challenging this week with a large dump of snow on Tuesday which looks quaint but is not great for laying concrete or working outside.
