‘There seems to be rather less of it than there was before,’ my mum said as I proudly showed her the photos that proved work was continuing on our building site, ‘Is that right?’
It is right although it’s understandable that it doesn’t immediately seem like a step forward. Before the new roof goes on and the external wood cladding, they have to remove the old roof that needs to be replaced and check the metal structure for repairs. Next step will be repairs to the frame and to the concrete foundations that each steel stanchion sits in. After that, comes the excitement of new roof and the walls going up.
Until then, in this instance, less is actually more.
