This day was a most exciting day (Friday 9th of Sept)! The whole house turned green as the waterproof paper and the battons were put on. I only arrived when most of it was done. This step made the whole house entirely waterproof. In time the roof tiles will go on and cement board and a plaster render will cover the house! But for the moment the house is GREEN!
The builders made it look easy, but each piece of paper had to be laid over the lower one, making sure any water falls down and off the house. The windows had to be surrounded neatly, and each batton had to be the right length. Each batton was nailed to a corresponding wall stud (if that’s the correct word) inside the house. This means that the battons, walls and rafters all correspond. It makes it all look so tidy!! I like tidy!
