A couple of milestones to report for today. Firstly Trevor has bricked up to the top of the staircase, something that seemed almost impossible way back in August.
Also, and with Trevor doing the majority of the lifting, we managed to get the steel above the upstairs landing, and it's friend that joins into it in place.
Fantastic progress and if you look really closely at the steel beam, you can see the holes that Darren drilled into it.
These only took about three hours to make, plus two visits to Toolstation by me to get replacement drill bits.
He has got the technique off pat now, but unfortunately I don't think that any more drilling is required.
