Ground floor is up!

So after 1 full day and 2 mornings we have the ground floor panels all up after some jiggling and shimming.
It was probably a little easier than I expected as all the panels are numbered and it is just a case of lifting them into position, levelling them and nailing them down.
However, some of the panels are extremely heavy and without the JCB to lift with we would have needed a crane.
We found today we are missing a part, the lintel across the large windows at the front but a quick phone call to the suppliers and this will be delivered Tuesday along with the missing Velux windows.
One or two bits of information are missing from the drawings but again, always solved by a quick phone call.  maybe it is our inexperience but the questions are always answered quickly and far:)

Tomorrow we start on the roof!
