Day 1 - The Space
Despite having a large Lime tree with a preservation order next to the proposed site of the new office, progress has rocked on. We needed to use special pad foundations (that rest on the surface) and don't damage or disturb the roots of the tree. The building work is being supervised by an arboreal consultant to ensure the builders do their job without damaging the tree. I'm not kidding. So the tree is fenced off and boards have been put down to stop soil compaction.
Then, and only then could work commence.
Day 2 - The foundations and footings are complete
Day 3 -The walls go up
Despite the ferocious cold, by the end of the day the roof was on, but by then the light was so low I couldn't capture it in a photo.
To be continued.
