Installation of the glazing

After the heavy snow and cold weather up at Tummel Bridge, the contractors have managed to install the opening Velfac windows and have made a good start on fitting the fixed glazing. This really started to emphasise the framed views and is another great step to making the house weather tight. During our site visit we were lucky to be able to see the delivery of the large curtain wall glazing panels and the initial fitting at the South gable. At the North gable we are already seeing a transformation in the living space with the removal of the temporary protective panels. We are very excited to see this space transform even further as the glazing is installed over the next few weeks.

It was great to see the zinc roof now that its protective covering has been removed and the snow has melted. The two shades of grey resemble the colours of the water of Loch Tummel and from afar allow the house to really blend in with the surrounding landscape. Eaves details to what will be a green roof have now also been constructed which start to show the finishing profile, and the first fittings of the plumbing and electrics are almost complete. 

In addition, we were happy to see some more precast concrete elements from Lazenby having been delivered to site. The photo here shows some of the wall caps and window cills and the excellent sharp finish that we were looking for!
