Starting to fit the end posts. The posts are 250mm square, you can see the wood for the posts piled up in the background. Compare them to Scott's van and you might get an idea of the weight. The posts were recessed for the beams to slot in, and later bolted together with two 20mm threaded rods. You can see a couple of sheets of lead lying on two of the foundations to the left, this lead was used to keep the beams and posts off the foundations to prevent rain water soaking into the wood. We later placed a layer of bituthene inbetween the lead and the wood to increase water insulation.
