Framing a big building outdoors in the Welsh weather is no fun, and hard work too, so Woodulike of Rhosllanerchrugog did it. I already had secondhand windows and doors so John arranged the walls to suit.
Woodulike’s price included delivery and erection, and given the risk of dropping this piece off the edge it was money well spent.
After two months of intermittent work it starts to look like a building. The flowerbed here was built at the same time as the other groundworks and Linda’s planting is already looking established.
This slightly nerdy photo shows how the interface between wood and concrete wall is arranged.
Woodulike make sheds, pergolas, stables and the occasional office, but they don’t often get to work on a high-rise building. John’s lad is fitting the rafters.
