Man cave: Day 8
Well, technically, the windows are not in yet, but they have managed to sort the first course of bricks and so have worked out the exact placement and size of windows and door frame, so all ordered.
The building inspector was a bit of a pain - as the builder said, it was clear that the garage was built on the same foundations as the house, and not some later extension. Also, the wall was not supporting anything (there is a big lintel over where the door was). Even so the building inspector insisted they dig down along side the foundations to confirm how deep they were. They are, of course, fine, and the builder has been able to start.
Rumour has it that the wall will be done tomorrow, and also the plastering starts tomorrow - and ideally finishes so it can dry over the weekend. We have all of the dry lining done ready, now that the window and door opening are decided.
I have ordered some nice door handles today. I have also ordered a sofa bed (which takes 8 weeks!).
