Post 91: And we have a Learning Studio
So it still needs to be accessed through a window opening whilst wearing a hardhat and hi-vis vest but it is definitely a room with wall, ceiling and floor (no doors yet). I was asked whether it felt as big as I had imagined. In fact I had been very nervous about this size issue and so had been managing my expectations carefully but in the event it was just as I had hoped not too big, not too small but like Mary Poppins practically perfect in every way.
The wonky walls have not been quite so perfect and trying to make two level door openings has proved interesting. It really is remarkable how much the building has moved, although still remaining perfectly structurally sound, in the last 300 years. Anyway the roofers arrive this week and I think the 2015 lines are completely level so I hope they have an easy enough time. Being up close to the room I was also able to see the phenomenal layers of construction fabric used in the build up of all the surfaces. Acoustic separation and insulation a go go, if you don’t want to get cold or hear anyone outside I suggest this room will be perfect.
Finally, continuing the chim chimerny theme I love this sunny roof top image I caught from the highest level of the scaffold – it was all very Dick van Dyke although Simon refused to sing or dance, he really is so unreasonable.
