Its amazing how quickly things progress once they get started and the eternal rain stops.. Half the building is now water tight and the first section of underfloor heating has been able to go in with the 'floating' floor on top, the dry stone wallers have been doing a fine job of getting the demolished sections of the building back to their former glory, better in some places, and the cottage windows have arrived ready for installation. Meanwhile work inside progresses as the rooms in the barn start to tke shape, it'll be carpets and curtains before we know it!
After being almost one of the first things on site, way back in January, our first skylight has been installed today. This is the first small step in creating the formed roof space for the new building, more challenges ahead I think with all the head scratching thats going on.
The sun is shining and the roofers are fixing the first slates onto our new roof, you can't ask for a better start to the week than that!
Here's a nice article in the Herald (Glasgow) from shortly before the NGS Garden Open Day.

We've been talking about lighting for the new building for so long now and all the time it's been right here in front of our faces.
