First Floor
Window repairs are complete. We are fitting the glass into the existing windows now. We have installed the new windows to the south and they are ready for glazing. The new roundels are being fitted along with the glazing. The old fire escape door is being filled in with new stonework so we can add a window in this location (re-using some of the original if possible).

Attic
The plant room has now been formed which allows the electrical and mechanical services to carry on. The final few floorboards from the attic have been removed to allow the fire break to be completed in this area.
