Work is progressing on the house with both chimneys being taken down and rebuilt. The external pointing has been picked out where possible and will be pointed in lime mortar once the weather is warm enough i.e. no chance of overnight frosts.
At the rear the old extension and it’s rotten roof have gone. A new extension with external stone walls to match the original house are being built to house the changing and treatment rooms, plus a small kitchen area for making tea and coffee on the business side.
That gap will be the rear business entrance!
Next big job is to replace the main slate roof before putting a new roof on the rear extension. In the meantime we will start external pointing on the first floor level and gable ends.
Also good news on the administrative front – we have received both Planning Permission for the change of use (from shop to sports massage and personal training) and Building Regulations approval for building work proposals, subject to submitting final plans for a few things.
