Building Progress ~ March 2009

Category: Barn Conversion Journal April 16th, 2009 by mbc

(Oh no I’ve done it again; my March progress report is late just like February’s was – sorry)

The two main developments this month are the completion of the flue that I’ve already mentioned and the water mains connection being brought into the barn – previously it only came as far and an external tap.

As I’ve said before, I’m really pleased with the flue and the choice we made to run it internally, rather than going back to planning for permission to install it externally. Warmer, easier and I think all-in-all neater and easier on the eye. I’ve not actually personally lit the stove as yet, I know the men who installed the flue have tested it – in my minds eye the white plume of smoke arising above the barn will signal a new era in the life of the barn…
