As of the 20th February 2019 the entire Cross-laminate timber frame has now been erected by a specialist team from Ireland and scaffolding is now being erected to prepare for the construction of the larch shingle roof. As you will see in the pictures we even received a blessing of snow just as the final timbers were being put in place.
Some of us have the chance to look inside and are very satisfied indeed with the beauty that the geometry creates with the exposed wood grain. It is beyond our expectations and our gratitude goes out especially to our courageous and inspired architect Nic Pople and Structural engineers David Tasker and Peter-John Corbett whose close co-working have envisaged this inspiring design.
The contractors are expected to be completed by the middle of August 2019 after which we will begin the decorating, installation of cupboards and preparation of the spaces for the official opening and consecration on the 20th October 2019. See the invitation here.
