Sorry for not commentating much on the below pictures, internet still down at home so am stealing some from work…
Ben’s wall plates were installed to compress the walls. The first section was easy enough.
…break for lunch…
The second section of wall plate was a bit more complicated, needing to go the other side of two supporting posts and to be lowered over the door and window posts.
Ben designed it in two pieces which joined over the door so that we could wrestle it out there, then complete it, then drop it down into place.
A little last minute fettling was necessary.
But then it went absolutely beautifully.
And earned Ben a round of applause.
The group photo.
And the house all tarped and ready for me to have a day off by coming to the Royal Exchange to do a bit of sewing. Heaven!
