It's not a roof update . . .

To those who commented on our GRP, this is not an update. The next installment to that will hopefully be at the end of next week when the crap roof will be off and a proper company coming in to sort after we insisted on an insurance backed guarantee. I shall update then, watch this space!

 

Flat roof aside.....

 

All our new extension had insulation laid and our existing flooring excavated for insulation too. We had the UFH pipes laid and there was A LOT.

And then screed laid which is suprisingly even and flat using TG Cemfloor – a liquid self-levelling screed. Needless to say they did a better job of this than the roof.

And part of the in roof solar frames have also gone up.

Our builders found these up the loft when taking down the old ceilings. Unfortunately empty! Someone had a good party 😉

I'm going to eBay them next free listing. All of them have labels on them too. I think they must be before 1968 because of the London Airport name.

Crates look cool.  I'd post a pic on Instagram. And hashtag it with drambuie and you might find someone who will pay a lot for them.

Who did the excavation of the old slab? The builders? Any chance you could indicate the cost involved / size, possibly, pm? I have been getting wild numbers for this.

Yes, completely broke out the old slab on the existing because we wanted the same spec and insulated floor to match the new block and beam. It's difficult to say as it's incorporated into a full quote/breakdown with other work. It certainly wasn't cheap but it was important for us to get insulated floors.

Ah. Memories of drinking drambuie.

 

On ebay that looks like £350-£500 worth.

Those pics are looking good. Starting to move forward. Looking forward to seeing the new roof.
