The team arrive - Lee and Stuart from Phil Coppell and it is a lovely sunny day, just right for taking the roof off the conservatory!

Going, going – (Chris looks delighted not to be doing anything – hmmm, that won’t last long!)
Going - gone! Let's hope it doesn't get any cloudier.

Marine ply, already cut to size before it reached the site is now in place - we haven't seen Lee or Stuart take a break yet. Talk about 'cracking on'!

DPC and external insulation in place as well as roofing membrane and the Tapco slates (colour - Plum, and a good match with our roof tiles). WE are really excited about how it looks already.

Lee starting work on the ridge tiles – looking like a roof now!
Ridge tiles in place. Lee is doing a splendid job of this as well as the lead flashing onto the side of the house.

Inside the kitchen had t accommodate all the furniture and cupboards that were previously in the conservatory - quite a squeeze getting past everything.
Inside the kitchen had to accommodate all the furniture and cupboards that were previously in the conservatory – quite a squeeze getting past everything. Notice the bag of ‘scrumped’ Damsons – these were soon made into a lovely jam; from tree to jar in three hours! I tried it out on Stuart and as he liked it I gave a jar to him.
Wednesday 5th August - Stuart has insulated the internal roof space and put up the plasterboard and routed the electrics. All looking good.

On the outside Lee and Stuart put up all the edging strips and the guttering. Andrea the representative from Phil Coppell's suggested the black as a finish and it works really well. Only one small hitch but Chris quickly solved it, was the 135 degree downpipe joint was not long enough so a quick trip to Fleetgate solved this and soon the downpipe, guttering and water butt were all connected and good to go! Well done, Team.

Thursday 6th August all was completed and ready for the plasterer to finish the inside. Stuart had changed the old window boards inside for new ones, which look very nice and give a really crisp clean feeling to the 'new' conservatory room. Lee finished off most of the work outside but one part was still outstanding - so he arranged to 'pop' back on Friday 7th August to complete the last small portion of the end boarding - a mere 3 hour round trip. Thank you so much to Lee and Stuart who worked tremendously hard and have produced a great finish. Thank you and well done - we are really pleased and would thoroughly recommend both you and your firm.
