There's action aplenty at the Sow's Ear central!
Mr D finished the gates for the fence during the week (I'll show you the photos when we finish painting). We've been really happy with Mr D, particularly as he had big shoes to fill after Mr Rooney, our original builder, moved to to Canberra.
Jason was so pleased with everything, he's asked Mr D to stay on with us to do more work. This will involve weatherboarding the whole downstairs area of the Sow's Ear. It used to be clad in fibro (some bad ass asbestos fibro and some new good stuff). We organised its removal a few days ago, so it is now all safe and clear for re-cladding next week.
I forgot to take some photos of the area to be be re-clad but will make sure I do that tomorrow to show you what it looks like.
|You can see the glimpse of the new gates. We plan to finish painting the fence over the Easter weekend. And we were getting all our timber weatherboards delivered this particular day.|
This weekend, we (and this is not the royal 'we' for a change...where have I gone wrong?) have been priming the rough sawn hardwood weatherboards, so that they are ready to be installed next week. There's over 100 of the bloody things and no way in the world can Jason paint them all in time by himself. Never fear, Brismod to the rescue...but there will never be any photographic evidence. You'll just have to take my word for it....
|Paint Jason, paint! Paint harder.|
