We used the telehoist to unload them and set them down near the West wall of the house.

I have prepared a temporary place for the trusses.

We have had to brace the southern wall, due to there being no internal walls and that the pier between the two large openings on the ground floor being a bit narrow. These braces will be taken down when the roof is attached.

The weather at the moment has been very kind to us so the block layers have made great progress.

The Southern wall will be finished first to wall plate level and then the to gable walls, East and West. Then they will complete the North wall to wall plate level. The trusses will fixed on the wall plates which are made of timber. The block layers say that they should be finished in two weeks weather depending.
