The mesh has now been placed ready for the concrete to be pumped in from the road. The garden room has a lower finished floor level than the main house by 450mm so that when you are sat in the garden room space your eye level should be just above ground level so your view of the garden is more intimate than that of the rest of the house.
To protect the internal space the walls have been tanked with a waterproof membrane system (white fabric in the images) that keeps the walls dry and drains away any excess water from around the footings. The blockwork walls are now up to dpc level.
