Roof Done! – Building The Cabin At Glehias

Glehias Carp Lake have begun work on the Floating Island Cabin in readiness of the 2014 Season, here’s this week’s update from Lee…

Six weekends into the cabin build now at Glehias and the roof is on and watertight, this means that as soon as I have completed all the external joinery the shiplap can go on. Apart from a bit of guttering, decking and balustrading, the project will be in the dry to reduce the risk of anything being ruined by the now worsening winter weather (including me!)

I also managed to get six of the eighteen perimeter posts fixed in place which will eventually hold a rope fence around the decked area.

After the external walls are clad the next thing on the list will be the main gas run before the internal floor goes down, and then onto the wiring, all this should keep me busy over the next few weeks!
