The section of wood rot on the deck rails is now repaired.
Jason replaced the rotted bottom rail on Christmas Eve and today he replaced the rotted timber balustrades.
Before Mr Rooney, our vacationing builder, came on the scene, Jason would never have dreamed to replace balustrades by himself.
The weekends he's spent with Mr Rooney working on the Sow's Ear has certainly given him more confidence to tackle jobs like this.
I wasn't that keen on him doing it just in case he stuffed it up and we'd have to board up the dangerous gaping hole on our very high deck. She of little faith...
He's done a splendid job. What do you reckon, Mr Rooney? I know you're reading...Is very nice?

Jason's been busy with his paint brush. He told me he's developed calluses on his fingers. Sadly, there is more to do.
|Our master bedroom is progressing nicely too. One final coat is needed on the VJs in this section only.|
The next project is to remove the wardrobe doors and paint those in stages. Fun, fun, fun!

All in all, it has been a highly productive festive season at the Sow's Ear.
