‘Dreich' day on site but work is moving along well

Our site visit this week was extremely wet and muddy as the snow and ice melts and the temperatures rise again. This is great for the building as it means the masonry works can push on. The beautiful Caithness stone walls have grown higher at the south end of the house and the first of the precast concrete cills from Lazenby concrete have been built in between the Caithness coursing. Before the very cold weather hit at the beginning of the previous week, those on site were able to pour the ground floor concrete screed. With the underfloor heating in, the building now has a chance to heat up and dry off and will soon be ready for the Dinesen floor boards to be laid. While the concrete was curing, work was able to progress on the first floor with the completion of the internal acoustic insulation and the fitting of door frames. Last but not least, despite the the ‘dreich’ Scottish weather outside we were really able to enjoy the corner view formed by the glazing in the kitchen. This has to be one of our favourite moments.
