UPDATE ON BUILD PROGRESS MAR 02
4 March 2013 / Project Thorney / Build Works
Over the last few weeks our build project has really taken shape. Our boiler plant rooms has been constructed and all of the internal structural work is now complete. We are now waiting for internal fit out and delivery of our new Biomass Heating System.
The old Annexe becomes the new Grasmere Bunkhouse
This is an impression of the new building, by our architect William Sutherland.
Now that the concrete base we can start the build.
The first few blocks go up quite quickly.
These are the concrete roof beams. Apparently they are meant to be bent.
Once in place we have a roof.
With the roof in place we can begin stone facing the outer walls with traditional Lakeland stone.
A painstaking approach is required.
Bye bye to the old windows.
Will they fit we all ask? Of course they will!
Our disabled access takes shape.
Ready for our weekend guests to arrive.
We need to cast a concrete wall at the back of the new plant room.
Finishing the casting job off.
Meanwhile some internal jobs are still on the go – wiring, heating system and plumbing.
A new toilet will go here.
Finally the rooms are plastered.
Plastering in progress,
Our new key fobs arrive.
All organised for the new season.
