The delivery driver couldn't get the wood directly into the barn, but he did leave it quite conveniently just beyond the big glass doors. We had been offered help to shift it, but it didn't arrive... hmmm.
A nasty storm was on the books, so Lady Magnon and I set to and managed to carry the whole lot indoors within an hour or so, by ourselves.
It may not look terribly heavy, but believe me; it was. Those long bits are 7 metres long, and 7 by 17 cms in section. The big pile in the background, was simply a very big pile. It was also a very hot and sticky afternoon.
Not long after everything had been safely stored inside we managed a quick swim before the storm arrived, and the heavens opened.
Now all we have to do it put it all together to make the structure for the new 1st floor.
My back is aching already.
