As if the week wasn’t quite packed enough with action, we took delivery of our Smartwin passivhaus windows & doors on Friday. It’s been a bit of a logistical conundrum – due to recent wet weather the artic lorry could not park along the verge near the site, so we offloaded half the windows in a layby and the big sliding doors & main antrance door at the nearest industrial estate with a help of forklift truck. Those triple glazed sliding doors are pretty hefty at 300+ kg!
It was very satisfying to see the sliding door put in place only 9 days after starting the timber frame. All the planning, coordination and detailed design over the past few months has definitely paid off!
Hopefully next week is going to be dry enough to allow us install woodfibre boards on roof and provide the much needed protection for the straw panels.
