We are embarking on a self build project to build our own house in the Highlands of Scotland. This will be a record of our progress (or otherwise) as we wend our way through all the process of planning, warrants, builders and suppliers.

So the slates for the roof have finally arrived today. Major buying decison - Welsh, Spanish, Brazilian, Chinese, or Canadian. We have eventually decided on Spanish but ours are called Caledonian Heavies as they are 2-3mm thicker than normal slates, the extra weight helping in our exposed location.
So 5000 slates, 10,000 nails - someone is going to busy next week!
