Once again it was hard to decide just what to wear – if all the shooting was inside – the heaters on at full blast to keep the interiors warm would make it hot and sticky; if the exteriors showed the most changes, then it would be just right. The latter was my choice, so initially I concentrated on what was happening outside, but it was soon inevitable that I found myself checking out the most conspicuous changes to bathrooms, and corridors.
When the bathrooms and kitchens are more finished I will use a wider angle lens, but for the moment, the details of the unfinished work is more important than the overall view, so the less wide the shot is, the larger it appears within the galleries. The electricians and carpenters were hard at it, connecting up and testing the electrical wiring, and hanging doors in the corridors.
The garden areas are now being planted, hopefully allowing them to bed in; I just hope the frost does not kill them all! Most of the last roof structures are now weathertight, these are the garages. Outside the site, work has been carried out in the service road parallel to the High Street; it is largely complete but protected by brightly coloured plastic guardrails, so access along the service road is somewhat restricted till these are fully restored. It was good to see that some effort was being made to clean the wheels of vehicles leaving the development site.
