At last, the work on the barn floor is under way. Harvey J and Ollie oversee the builders as 'the bloody JCB man' takes bucket after bucket of hard-core inside (there were 3 more men and a flattening machine inside).
Maybe in two years time the boys will be sleeping there, so I'm very pleased that they've seen the very beginning of the work. I'm now suddenly looking forward to starting work on the interior.
Downstairs will be one large open space with a long table and benches to seat about 20, a very modern simple 'cuisine', and a spectacular sweeping staircase (yet to be designed).
Upstairs..... well we'll think about that later, but it will definitely have a big 'wet-room', and probably one or two bedrooms.
This is what it looked like at the end of the day. We now have to wait until the end of the holidays when (if we're lucky) they'll return to lay the metalwork and actual concrete. It's a start, at least!
