Back Filling

With the weather still on our side an evening party met at the museum and started to back fill the cavities of the new extension level with the external ground level. This requires a weak mix of concrete at about 8:1 sloped towards the external face to allow any water in the cavity to escape.

We have booked our block layer to come back in August to start building the walls up to wall plate level, with the ultimate aim of having the roof fitted, felted and battened before the end of October ensuring it is weather tight before the winter.
