Where oh where oh where the windows?

March 22, 2007

All was proceeding reasonably smoothly, with the Contractor pulling out all the stops in readiness for the arrival of the windows on Thursday 15th March. Needless to say on Wednesday, chasing up an arrival time I discovered they were not coming at all. In fact there still seems to be no clarity on when they might arrive. It’s the lack of information that’s totally maddening.
Having been awarded the contract on the basis that they had confirmed the delivery date for week beginning 12th March I am less than impressed. The only saving grace is that we haven’t paid them a penny to date so if they continue to mess around we will go elsewhere.
The window are made from sustainably sourced spruce, with high performance glazing and are manufactured in Germany by Seufert Niklaus. Here’s a link to their website:
Latest ETA is friday this week. We will see……

Walls going up

The internal walls are nearly studded out in timber with netting being added to take the lambs wool insulation before walls are enclosed in plasterboard. Good progress is being made on site in preparation for the windows arriving week beginning 12th March.
Here’s a pic of the living room at the rear, showing the double height space with the clerestory windows.
