We had some wild Autumn weather at the weekend so it was a chilly post-frontal breeze as well as getting muddier around the site.
Around lunchtime the first wall was put in place on the wall plate - this being the northwest corner of the house where the guest bedroom is situated. As I was chatting on the phone the rest of that end of the house was put it in place - the wonder and speed of timber frame construction. This second photo was taken around 3.30pm and the house is really taking shape. This view is from the northeast looking at the kitchen on the left, the front door location in the centre of this elevation and then the ground floor bathroom at the right.
Final photo is the view from the window of the guest bedroom. You can see the rain coming over the hills!
