Le premier étage.

Today saw the first few joists go into the first floor.
As you look at the fruits of our labour, the untrained eye misses just what a difficult and time consuming job this is. Each joist weighs a ton and needs to be lifted up into the ceiling.
I watched.
I found the tools.
I provided tea and support...and felt totally useless and full of admiration as Marcus just got on with it.

The start of our first floor

This is Marcus who just knows how things are done.


  1. Well some-one has to do the fetching and carrying! It must be brilliant to see the first floor taking shape!

  2. Very true Alison. Without that it would take three times as long!

  3. Great designing done with ceiling
