Well... Those horrible school canteen lights are out, plug sockets disconnected, air con moved, and two more walls are up. Also bought new plug sockets and what will be the internal lights. It's starting to take shape...

Timber joist structure

And here's the plan for the internal timber structure. Loving the sketchup program now, not bad for free...

Whilst building this, the outside panels will also need to go up. To save on weight (and money), the outside panel will be from basic hardboard. It's only 3mm but should be able to keep the rockwool in place which will be inbetween the timber joists. Construction starts this week!

The floor build

Well... my builder (my Dad) has been busy. The floor is complete, and built pretty close to the plan. Here's a few pics. The next phase will be working out how many timber joists are needed for the stud walls and putting the shell together.
