This is my last piece of barn work for the moment; my job was to build, and plaster, all the downstairs walls.
I'm not sure if you can see (enlarge perhaps?), but I have now built the two walls surrounding the downstairs windows out of heavy concrete blocks. This is because the windows themselves are quite heavy (being big and double glazed), and I want them to be 'rock-solid' when opening or closing.
I shall now leave them for several days before plastering. I also have the kitchen 'peninsular' wall (the low one on the right) to plaster..... then I'll be FREE.
We're soon going to have to think about building the dining table. It needs to be at least 4 metres long and 1 metre wide, and will need to seat 10 comfortably.... I refuse to eat within elbow touching distance of another diner. Of course, I may never be invited to dine there, not being vegan.
It's a big room. Funsville!
Your barn looks great. Your hard work is shown here...ReplyDelete
Still a few months work ahead, but now mostly for tradesmen; and not me!Delete
I know for sure I could never have done this much quality (AND quantity) work. Great on you, Cro!ReplyDelete
It's been hard work, but enjoyable.Delete
Lucky kids. When are they planning to move in?ReplyDelete
They arrive in early July... I think.Delete
Impressive, Cro. And you're going to make a dining table now as well? You sure do like to keep busy! I like plenty of elbow room at the table too. But...vegan? That's a difficult path to choose. Meatless Mondays are the best I can manage, and I don't skimp on the cheese and eggs!ReplyDelete
We do veggie Wednesdays, but at least I know that on Thursday we'll be eating meat again!Delete
Funsville, the place will rock with wall to wall sound and psychedelic lights, dancing until dawn and Bunny in his cot. And s bowl of quinoa for breakfast.ReplyDelete
Moonstompin' to Ska from night till day. But I'll go home for my bacon breakfast.Delete
THis is an amazing place for your son's family.It looks great, every thing.ReplyDelete
We hope so. It's super-insulated, and as Eco as we can afford. I hope they'll be happy there.Delete
You are such a tidy worker Cro ……. and, what a lovely home it's going to be. XXXXReplyDelete
The heating engineer is there today, fixing radiators and putting pipes through the roof. It's all coming together.Delete
That is quite an accomplishment, Cro. Your pride in your work is well deserved.ReplyDelete
You are a man of many talents, for sure. Your son's family is very fortunate -- in many respects...ReplyDelete
A man of shining parts. AND he can paint!ReplyDelete
