Update on build progress Dec 12
21 December 2012 / Project Thorney / Build Works
A quick update on work carried out just before Christmas on our new building plans.
First priority is establishing a new plant room to house the new wood pellet boiler. Second priority is carrying out refurbishment work to the Annexe. Third priority is implementing the new heating system.
Estimated completion date end of March 2013.
Prior to work starting with snow on the ground in December 2012.
Digging in the snow with a hired digger.
We had to remove a large old tree stump. Very surprisingly it came out easily.
After some time we found that we had made a hole in the ground. This is where the new plant room and fuel store will be built.
Colours in the rock, typical of Grasmere slate.
Work temporarily halted just before Christmas as digger pneumatics failed.
