While keeping a very close ear to the shipping forecast for further expected rain and gales Martin and Denis have been very busy today adding the finishing touches to the exterior of The Bothy.  The windows were installed before the worst of the weather arrived yesterday and thankfully we have not been effected so far by the fallout from the storms

The Plumber and gas fitter were both on site today and we expect to see them again on Monday to move/replace the gas boiler and to install our AD and DC electrical systems. Martin expects to make progress with the flooring next week also and tomorrow will be spent researching light fittings and floor coverings.

From here it looks like we might begin to paint and decorate the interior around about December 11th and be all moved in and operating before Christmas, which will give me an opportunity to re-organise my amateur radio station during the holidays.  It also means of course that when our good friends the Jacksons arrive at Cork Airport on January 3rd for a long overdue few days visit, they will have somewhere to stay, as my current radio room will become the new guest room.
