This is our new staircase. Well, it will be one day. Apparently it needs to dry out for a bit first. Following construction it will be going in this hole
The beam you can see is at chest height on the first floor, so the idea is that the staircase will go up and divide beneath it to allow access to either side. We couldn't bear to chop out this lovely bit of carpentry (and it would seriously undermine the roof to do so.
The area of light you can see on the left hand side is yet another velux going in, now that Neil has practiced and got the bit between his teeth - so its all happening here at chez nous.
I have just got back from the vets with Tam (again) this time he has been given the all clear - he no longer has a temperature or dodgy eyes - just a rather odd shaped nose, but that doesn't seem to be giving him any problems.
