That’s as far as the lining goes, for the time being.
On to the next project: constructing wooden covers for the western windows and ventillation outlet. They should come into their own whenever the westerly sun generates too much warmth for comfort.
We plan to install two ‘Whirligigs’ on the roof – but more of that later. The making of window covers will take a while yet: it is a fiddly job.
And I have not forgotten the heavy barge planks and fascia board, patiently waiting their turn….
Not, as far as I know, the original: a good facsimile…
We have hung it, for inpiration, in the north-west corner, where the old drafting table will find its new home.
That table has already provided the template (the heights and breadths) for a number of small boats long vanished, except in spirit….
Restored with cypress offcuts, fixed immoveably in place, and more or less shipshape.
It will be the heart of the boatshed….
One section to go on the northern wall – but I am running out of cypress….
Sam, Jonny,Pete and Daniel helped me with this project.
I was thankful for the additional muscle power: the bench has a weight to it, and prefers to remain in the one spot.
I think it already looks ‘at home’.
