Hello All, well its been a very long time since we spoke on this blog. I have been really busy building my new house in Plymouth and I have so many stories to tell. Building your house is one of the most rewarding things you can do, but it is also incredibly stressful as well.
Im sure you can imagine!
It doesn’t help when one day you have nice sunny dry weather and the next week you have The beast from the east which totally stops everything in the UK with about 3cms of snow.
I mean really, it is doing about 2 metres in the Alps and business carries on as normal but here it brings everything to a standstill. My children had their school shut even before a single snowflake fell to the ground! It was cancelled purely on a weather forcast. And guess what it never even snowed that day!
So during all this madness we were installing our new roof on our house build in Plymouth and it was a difficult task to say the least!
This is a picture of what a new roof installation should look like.
I dont really dare put a picture of what our roof looked like during the build because it really wasnt as good as this at all. So I am pleased wuith the end result but during the storm things did not look rosey at all.
but I have learned a lot and will be dreaming about rafters, batterns and tiles for many years to come Im sure. I will post more building stories when I get time
