Is it odd that there aren't more windows??
Brian Walbey: Top floor is bathroom window, bottom left is kitchen and bottom right is lounge/dining room, all the rooms are very small.

Really liking this timelapse effect, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, I bet it wouldn't be such a long time lapse if I set to with a JCB one night!

This has all happened so quickly
Brian Walbey: The pictures up to now have been from late April to late July, after that there were different tradesmen there doing the finishing off works over a couple of months.

A blink of the eye and you would never know what was there before.
Brian Walbey: About four months to get it to this stage, with only the internal works to finish.
It has blended in quite nicely.
Brian Walbey: At least that is one consolation Mary.

What an ugly fence. The inhabitants of the house don't want to be seen.
Brian Walbey: The fence was put up by the builders on behalf of the owner, the residents only rent the house so wouldn't have had any say in the matter. Lots of people have these sort of fences, we have a hedge instead as Friday's posting shows.

Well it has come on quite quickly.I'm told that all the doors and doorframe now come ready assembled and just need to be fixed in place and I now that all the plumbing now is just a push fit.
Brian Walbey: Seeing this being built from scratch it is clear there is, as you say, a lot of pre-constructed items going into houses now, and the interior wall all seem to be wooden stud walls instead of bricks or blocks, hopeless for put screws in!

Not too many windows overlooking you, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thankfully not, more about that in Friday's post.
It is not enhancing the view and that fence is particularly nasty
Brian Walbey: We hadn't got that much of a view but it seems to crowd down on us now when we look out of the front window.
All it lacks is a street artist to come along and perk up that wall!
Brian Walbey: Now there's an idea, where did I leave my paint brush smile
it seems that you are nearing the end of this series Brian... now that it's up it isn't all that ugly....petersmile
Brian Walbey: It isn't a case of what it looks like, it has been built directly opposite our front window and cut down quite severely on what little bit we could see outside.
at least it looks very cheerful on account of the blue skies and pleasant light, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Fridays post gives you more idea of how it encroaches on our outlook.
