Day Four.

Adding extra strength to the roof and ceilings and fitting the final internal wall, picture 10.
Then sorting the roof of the roof so to speak... he he. Well the top section ready for lights and boarding.

Day Three.

Last of the joists and more supports being fitted, it has been warm up in the loft even though the weather has not been too sunny.

Day Two.
Fit new 4x2's onto the original 4x2's to strengthen, the old loft was boarded with the chipboard planks.
They are just being used for ease of working up in the lost at the moment.
Picture 5 is the old loft hatch with the pitched roof above, so you can see why it had to be moved.

We are on the move, after living here for 33 years, now the move has been a saga but in a nut shell..

We had a buyer for 6 months, all was going through, surveys, mortgage, solicitors 100 odd questions he he.
Then we agreed contract signing date, moving date, did not hear anything then for 3 week and they pulled out.
Absolutely shocking behaviour, I was upset for a day but no point letting it get you down.
We are still on the move and have started to change the loft at the new house to convert into my balloon room/office come Balloon Towers.

So thought I'd post a few pictures, the old loft trap has to be moved as where it was had a pitched roof above and
not enough room to easily get into the loft. The new hatch is in the background with the ladders.
Day one was get all the tools and materials in, clear the loft space out and cut the new loft opening.

I started filming again yesterday, the plan was to wait till we had moved but what with the saga of that going on and on
I decided to start filming again. It's been 9 months since we were in front of the camera and things did not go to badly.
We filmed the Motor Bike, Pikachu and the Swan, I also managed to edit the Motor Bike so that will be posted on Sunday for this weeks tutorial.
