Here's the full corner post detail, as you can see it's quite complicated and was a bit of a pain to construct, but it's all done now, and supporting the corner of the wall above which you'll see in a photo further down the page.Here are some internal walls work in progress. We've finished laying the blockwork now, which is a bit of a shame as I think it's been my favourite part of the building work so far. This is the bathroom/kitchen/airing cupboard wall:And the living room/bedroom walls:
The soleplates for those have all been cut aswell, we just need some more bar and fixings to bolt them down to the slab. I'm also going to buy a slightly shorter 12mm drill bit for this job!
Here's the windows mocked up, I'm quite proud of these, they are a perfect fit in those spaces, with a ~5mm gap all the way round.

And here's one from the inside, with the corner of the wall above the windows in position and temp. braced:

We also managed to do lots of to-ing and fro-ing with doors and pit bikes and bags of sand and cement and such like. I'm about to order our last load of fixings now, and then we really have run out of money. Good news though - our stage 2 funds should be in our account on Thursday.
