Fortunately it was big enough to reach over next door’s property and do the lifting of the beams from the street. One of the beams was not in good condition and had to go, and another from the front was being used to replace it. Certainly had the townsfolk out and about having a look at the goings-on.
The first floor is down, precast reinforced beams in place, and a fresh batch of cement poured.
The walls of the first floor take shape, and the roof lining goes on.
