Our building contractors, Brooks & Wood, commenced work in September and made good progress up to the Christmas break. The rear extension was completed, the internal block-work partitions erected, and roof decking laid. Unfortunately towards the end of the Christmas break, key members of the Brooks & Wood team tested positive for Covid-19. This led to a two week delay before work restarted in mid January.
The roof has now been completed with the finish laid over a layer of insulation and the vellum windows fitted. Cavity wall insulation has been put in, and work has started on the mechanical and electrical installations. Internal plastering will commence soon, with the new doors and windows due to be fitted early in March, when the external rendering should then take place.
With the delay post-Christmas, the latest estimated completion date is now early May.
Once again, please pray for the positive attitude of the team to continue, for the safety of all involved, and for solutions to be found quickly for any problems that arise.
