I am working on three fronts at present: the entrance, the northern weatherboards, and the cypress lining.
I proceed cautiously with the entrance; it is unfamiliar territory. The cladding for the doors (10mm tongue and groove Cypress) arrives this week.
Weatherboard goes up easily enough on the fine days.
The cypress lining can be tricky. I have had my moments; a few boards had to be removed and replaced, with much ado. You may be wondering why the lining stops at about two metres (six feet five inches), and there is a simple explanation – that top point marks the extent of my ‘current financial capacity’.
Later on I will be able to climb to the ceiling, if some of those wooden spoons can find worthy homes….
