Transition from lounge room to kitchen - the view from my seat (this shot was taken in October 2009)
Before I knew it, Jason whipped out his chisel and hammer and he started demolishing one of the architraves. Off came the picture rails on the left wall.
"Whad'ya doing?" I asked, wondering what was in his coffee to create such a burst of activity.
"Well, d'ya want me to do the work or not?" demanded Jason.
"Yeah, but not right this minute...once you start it, you have to finish it..."
"Nag if I don't. Nag when I do. Can't win!" he muttered under his breath.
Me thinketh he will be rather sensitive in the year 2010.
Removing the picture rails - they are not original nor are they straight. The architraves where not properly mitred at the corners either.
Using a heat gun (thanks to generosity of Mr Rooney) to strip the paint off the repaired architraves.
