The steel turns up

On 5th February, the steel finally turned up. The delay was caused by the snow activity that occurred in the UK the week before. There was one slight difference - the steel was in 6m lengths instead of 4m, which meant that I had 30m instead of the 20m I was expecting. Oh well - enough for two! Anyway, that meant that I could start work on the 8th (being the first weekend with everything I needed).
