Build Day #95

IMG_4209T the painter continued today, mainly working on coating the render and the bay window. Dare I say it – is the house started to gain a little ‘street appeal’?

IMG_4211The scaffolders dismanted the rest of the scaffold. On the far left at the top of the picture you finally get a decent view of the new dormer on the top floor. Must take a better picture tomorrow. The roofers repaired the tiles on the lower rear roof.

They didn’t have quite enough reclaimed tiles to repair that broken corner tile so they will be back next week.

The Victorians always did mock-Tudor as black and white, though the Tudors usually left the timber to grey naturally and the limewash was often tinted – pinkish or yellowish – due to the minerals they used.
