Apologies for the delay in this latest set of photo's; I tried to load them a couple of weeks' ago but something wouldn't work. Today, for reasons beyond my comprehension, it does work.
The sewage treatment plant has been installed. According to the manufacturer's literature, the quality of the treated water is good enough to drink so if you're ever offered a bottle of Sleddale Hall mineral water...http://i.imgur.com/lmXsI.jpg
Inside the treatment chamber - rotating discs support bacteria which breaks 'matter' down. The inlet pipe is just visible at about four o' clock and the outlet at eleven o' clock. The outlet pipe discharges in to a land drain.http://i.imgur.com/FHqMf.jpg
The head and jambs of the doorcase have arrived from the quarry and are currently awaiting installation.http://i.imgur.com/O5ZCX.jpg
Looking up the staircase on a bright sunny day. Hopefully I'll finish the decorations here during my next visit.http://i.imgur.com/VPuUr.jpg
Tiling underway in the ground floor shower room. The tiles are a riven green slate which I thought would be an appropriate match for the local Westmorland slate. The tiles are laid on a cementitious tile-backer board which is impervious to water ingress.http://i.imgur.com/ZPZTb.jpg
Decorations in progress in bedroom 3. The ceiling's finished and patch repairs + polyfilling old plaster on the internal partition are just about complete. Decorations in bedroom 4 (visible through the door) are almost complete - a fire surround is on order and I have a grate for the fireplace which can also be seen through the door.http://i.imgur.com/Ls8XR.jpg
The first floor corridor; again, decorations well underway with joinery limed and waxed. Completion of painting to the last areas of polyfilled walls will take place next trip.http://i.imgur.com/VACH0.jpg
The bathroom decorations are also just about finished. Two top hung panels will be manufactured, as bath panelling, and will give access to a cupboard for storing odds and ends. http://i.imgur.com/IJROk.jpg
To finish this post, a Summer view from bedroom 4.
The sash windows are being glazed and decorated in the joiners' workshop and I hope they will be fitted very soon in which case I'll be posting some views from other bedrooms; can't wait!http://i.imgur.com/EWxP6.jpg
