Frantic activity in the last week - and we now have a third of the foundations in place. The builders have another week (this week) to do the remaining foundation holes, followed by a week on the ring beam which circles the entire shed (the trench for which has been half dug as seen in the photo).The building inspector has made his first inspection visit, and is happy with the foundations. We therefore see no delays in completion of the foundations around Easter - with the shed delivery due immediately afterwards, and erection during May.
