Here’s a pictorial essay showing the construction of the house up to the point that the windows are installed.
It’s about three years from our first visit and finally, at the start of March, things get underway on site. On the first of March we celebrated the kick off with a glass of bubbly with Dave Martin (Martin Builders), and his partner Alice. Dave has advised a build schedule with an expected completion in January 2021.
The windows are ordered from Logikhaus at about the same time. Because they’re being made in Europe, the lead time is long. At this stage, the windows are not expected till early August, which makes them the critical path for the whole construction.
Green roof. I’ll post separately about the green roof on the garage.
COVID. We were worried about delays arising from COVID. We’ve been lucky to date, with only minor impact. The windows had production delays of about three weeks. In the scheme of 2020 craziness, that’s not too bad. The biggest impact has been restrictions on our own ability to visit site.
