The loft will be fully boarded and insulated and will provide great storage or in future might be converted to a couple of rooms which would have far reaching views.

  1. Hi Mick, welcome back. If this weather holds you will have made great progress by the end of the year. Like the roof; spent a bit of time in my early years up there as it’s what my dad specialised in before ready-made trusses etc.
    Got any nails?
