It’s turned cold on site

You can tell it’s now winter as Lee, one of our builders has bought himself a new hat! He tells me he feels the cold terribly and was wearing more layers than seemed essential even on balmy days in November.

Progress has been rapid this week – I think they have had to keep moving just to keep warm up on the scaffolding as the wind has whipped across the site. Roof trusses had arrived on site when I came back this afternoon but by then it was too dark to photograph anything!

Stonework on the side of the house is almost at roof height

If you have a building project, interior or garden and landscaping project which you need help with or ideas for then please give me a ring: Alison 01572 747318 or 07973843020.

I work on interior design and garden design projects in Stamford, Lincolnshire, Oakham, Uppingham and Rutland as well as further afield. I will design a garden to complement the architecture of your home and choose the right landscaping materials to complement it. If you are frustrated with endless searching for the right fabric or wallpaper and paint colours and overwhelmed with the enormous choice, then allow me to make a handpicked selection for you. I will complement the style of your existing rooms and provide a few choice pieces which will bring the whole look together.
