We made a unplanned visit to site in Welford, Northamptonshire today and was taken back by the presence of the almost completed external shell of the two new build timber frame dwellings. The father and son client/contractors have produced first class finishes, the quality of the brickwork, consistency of render and accuracy of the cedar cladding should be a lesson to all in the construction industry. The external raised plateau and drainage will commence over the next few months with progress on the internal finishes with a potential completion April 2013.
