Digger!!!

As well as the building work last weekend James hired a mini digger (too mini for the job he wanted it for as it turned out)

As I left to go into cardigan to look at tiles he was a happy husband playing diggers and building a path down into orchard field from the yard!

Upon my return…..

A digger minus the treads on one side!!

Luckily our neighbour at the top of the hill used to work on diggers so he came up and fixed it…..

James had about another hour or two of digger play before it happened again…

He gave up! And luckily our neighbour came back just before we left to fix it again before it had to go back to the hire company!

Building work!!!!

Last weekend we went up to the farm to see what the builders had started!! We arrived to two builders in the kitchen of the barn chatting about various things and two plumbers finishing installing two solar thermal panels on the roof as the light was beginning to fade!!

The builders had tanked the kitchen utility wall, DPC’d the windows, built up most of the door frames and inspected a few areas telling us about some roofing brackets that were backwards and a wall that is sat on a steel beam which then holds the roof up which is possibly not safe!!! Argh!!! And the plumbers had installed the panels and the wiring down to the utility from them!!!

We also have had our hot water cylinder delivered!

It’s sat in the front part of the hovel!!

And the builders have built a little house for the electric box to be dropped into!!
