It was a momentous event earlier this week, when the first concrete foundations were laid. It is amazing how quickly they were in. Any concrete on Fordhall has previously been mixed in a wheelbarrow or on a board on the floor. So, a large mixer truck on the farm simply pouring ready mixed concrete into the 4m whole within minutes, was quite a sight.
These foundations will now allow the walls of our new tearoom to go back up – and so we still have our fingers crossed for a mild winter…..
Hopefully, the rest of the building will now begin to take shape quickly. 🙂
