Comment: View from east on Saturday morning.
Progress by Wednesday morning. Rain on and off all week.

First dimensioning error.  Francis, in my absence, decided to move a window by 5 cm (2 inches) to avoid having to cut a monomur.  Working from the inside, he didn't see that it should have lined up with the window below.  I made a fuss, but decided in the interests of good industrial relations, to not demand that he take down 2 courses and rebuild it.  Margaret could not see the error - only an architect would probably notice it.

View from South West.

Progress by Thursday afternoon - Francis had a meeting on Friday.  I cut down another tree which we decided was too close to drains and the sand filter on the west. Took advantage of the crane to stack the wood at the top of the site.

Inspection by Margaret on Saturday morning.  It had rained nearly every day in the week, but did not really hold up work.
