Steely gaze

Here's the steel, on site on time and looking great c/o PPS of Ulverston.
There have had to be a few alterations en route, seem to be due to errors in engineering which arose from a few people making a few executive decisions en route and not managing to tell anyone else :-)
Of course as a mere layman it's hard to be confident enough to check with people when you notice something is not quite what you expected - in this case the 'base level' of the house was set too high (which is not insignificant on a sloping site), and this has meant redesigning the staircase up to the building and the porch at its foot.
Which in turn has meant our architect taking the drawings on his fishing holiday in Scotland. Sorry Charlie.
