The ups and downs of renovating a house

…or two

Week 5 – the roof and window

It’s very exciting when you can actually SEE big differences.  In this week’s episode (I’ve always wanted to say that), you’ll get to see that the windows have all but put in and that they’ve begun to lay tiles on the roof.

We’re still waiting on our structural engineer to get moving and call the council about his calculations and I’ve enlisted our contractor to also follow up.  I’ve told our architect, who hired him, that we will never want to work with him again as he’s so very unresponsive in every way (she’s doing the drawings for our Vale house too).  The problem with him not talking to the council is that it means some work can’t be done.  My contractor is very good and will try to figure out things with the council if we can’t get the engineer talk to them.  He’s hoping we’ll be done with all of the major work in about 4 weeks (before Christmas!).
