My father is in the process of building a new house for himself, on a riverbank in the north east of Scotland. The whole thing is very modern and eco and made entirely from wood, and is designed as a more-or-less flat-pack which is assembled on site. A few months ago I was there, while they were assembling it, and I made some drawings:
Here’s the lower half of the site, nothing but the foundations.
Builders preparing for a new section of wall to be lowered into place with a crane.
Using a spirit level on a very long ruler to message the spirituality of the site, or whatever spirit levels do.
Some walls in place.
About half the walls in place on the lower side.
Walls in place upstairs too (it’s raining quite heavily, and I’m crouching under an umbrella to draw).
Putting in flooring.
Walls being lowered into place.
Builders doing something.
Almost all the external walls finished, lots to do with the internal walls.
