Hidden behind scaffolding and ladders!

It was hard to tell what progress has been made this week as the house is now completely surrounded by scaffolding and ladders. Don't get me wrong though - this is a good thing - this means they can keep bricking up towards the roof, get the roof trusses on and do various other things high up in the sky!

What we could see was that some more brickwork has been done and some especially funky sloping window ledges on the front windows. The columns to support the upstairs balcony and create the detail to the facade are also half done.

The only sad thing is that we are not really able to 'break in' through the side of the fence anymore because we're not brave enough to climb on the rather precarious looking scaffolding! This means that all the photos were taken through the gaps in the fence or by standing on the fence supports and shooting from up high - hopefully they're still ok though...
