Meanwhile – up on the roof

As you may recall, one of the first things to be done after works commenced and the scaffold was erected, was to remove the old heavy concrete tiles from the roof. These were doing the structural capacity of the frame no good and furthermore, they detracted significantly from the aesthetic quality and potential of the building. The replacement was to be natural slate, just as the original would of been. Not Welsh slate though, it’s far too expensive. Instead, I’ve plumped for a good quality Spanish natural slate. The finished roof looks magnificent – many thanks to Mark Swift and his team at Swift Roofing (
