The last two weeks the weather was very unreliable with most of the days either rainy or forecasted rain. This caused more than a week of delays as the builder couldn't finish the sealing of the concrete (where the walls will be placed).
This week we saw some good progress with the internal wall framing going up (bathroom, laundry etc.). The builder started also with building the scaffold to support the placement of the ridge beam - a 10 m piece of steel.
Unfortunately, the bad weather continued and it went from windy to storm last week. The scaffold was not prepared for that and decided to take a walk across the concrete floor last night. In doing so it took the bracing of the internal walls with it. What looked as great progress on Friday afternoon looked suddenly very sad on Sunday morning. Luckily the builder responded quick and saved the internal walls from further damage. It can all be fixed easily and the damage is limited. The scaffold needs to be rebuild though. At the end we are lucky that the steel ridge beam was not sitting on the scaffold.
