New Building: Week 28 - Roof

The new building's roof structure is all in place. In a few weeks, it will all be covered, tiled and weather-proof. Once that's done, work on the inside of the building can start, and then we'll be finished in no time at all! (Well, early next year isn't too far away…)

The new entrance to the private section of the new building — the front door to the bedrooms — has been built. Here are views from outside and in:

The new Parish office has a new floor, or at least the insulation that goes underneath the final floor. We're told that it's so efficient, you can't sit on it directly for long without things getting uncomfortable!

The lift shaft continues to grow…

And this is as good as the view is ever going to get. You can just glimpse the famous spires.

Just for fun, here's the full view (click it to enlarge):

New Building: Weeks 26 and 27 - Half way!

We are past the half way mark of the building project now! The work is more or less to schedule (there were a few delays caused by bad weather last month) but we still hope to be opening the new building in February next year.

Here you can see the roof taking shape:

Here is a view of the wall at the western end of the building:

We finally have a proper picture for you of that new doorway we told you about (from inside the coretto).

And finally, the inside of the Parish hall has been completely stripped and is ready to be re-plastered.

New Building: Week 25 - Carrying on

Things have been progressing smoothly on the building site this week. The new entrance to the accommodation is taking shape:

To the right behind the fencing, you can see the doorway to the new lift.

A doorway further up the building:

Here you can see the lift shaft nearly reaching the ceiling of the second floor:

And finally, the beginnings of the roof! More of that next week.
