Part of the steel formwork in place for the concrete floor.
In between welding the steel frame, the concrete leech drains are put in place. Note the drainage stone being used is from recycled concrete, a very inexpensive product.
A DIY 12volt electric winch being used to lift the top beams into place were they are then welded to the columns. The winch is from a quad bike and worked a treat! One beam is inplace and another ready for lifting. Note the treated pine timber fixed to the top of the beam is to fit the gutter to, much easier than trying to fix to 10 mm thick steel .
Once the beams are fitted the z200 purlins will be bolted to the ring beam .
Arriving in two weeks are all the aluminium windows and doors from China, purchased through WestChina Trading
