So after a few weeks of back and forth and waiting around, the Carpenters arrived on site as planned and so did the deliveries of timber and steel.
They tackled to get 2 large steel beams onto the extension straight away. It happened quickly surprisingly, for such large and heavy things. One steel beam spanned across the top of our master bedroom and the other above the kitchen area.
As you would expect with old houses, there were some things uncovered which made it a challenge for the Carpenters to get the steel beam above the kitchen in. It required some packing, but they have been able to fix the issue.
It’s taken 2 days for them to sort out the steel beam and by today we should start seeing some rafters go in. They have told us it should take 1.5 weeks to complete, roof frames, roof tiles and gutters.
