Today we had the first couple of courses of block work completed, and can see where the doors will be. The vents to extend the sub-floor ventilation from the existing house were installed. Lots of materials arrived today – metal grids / steel reinforcing mesh for the concrete slab, Thermalite blocks, bricks, lintels, and insulation.
It’s all coming together! Gaps for backdoor, and 2 sets of French doors in place
Earthwool Insulation for the walls
Lintels for the doors and windows
Soil vent pipe visible on the outside of the wall
Soil vent pipe nicely protected
Air ducts for sub floor ventilation
More materials! Sand, Thermalite blocks, bricks, metal mesh
Steel reinforcing mesh
