Default G - Day

The first part of the garage has already arrived. All the roof trusses arrived at 7:00am from Wrexham. There was me getting up to have a quick breakfast and go out and clear some snow and stood at the bottom of the drive is a wagon load of trusses. Helped the driver to off load them and now going to clear away the snow.

Will report back later.

I don't know about excited at the moment I am knackered. A pallet of shingles has just arrived because of the snow we had to handball them off the wagon all 500Kg of them, I had only got sat down after clearing the garage base of snow

You realise just how big a base it is when you have to clear it of snow. Just the garage to arrive now and hopefully should see some construction soon
