SRT on the balcony

As it was Sunday we had a lie in and a leisurely morning with egg window for brekky, one of Al’s specialities…yummy delicious.

Ekke popped around so Al could help him with some rope work, hanging from the balcony etc. which he really appreciated and then we headed up to the barn.

The warm wind of yesterday had brought with it the rain overnight and on/off today as well.

We manged to get the front inside wall finished before the first shower which was good.

Then it was Christmas time…we opened the boxes with the toilet in them, all looks quite simple famous last words. We have a few decisions to make re where to put the toilet with regards to the floor joists and a couple of other factors but we are down to 2 places now.

Rain stopped so we battled on once again with the walls before having lunch upstairs along with the bats!!!

We then managed to hammer in the final few joists in the annex so that we can attack the floor boarding tomorrow all being well.

Rain stopped again so we finished the back wall and really are as far as we can go before before we get going with the cement mixer to finish off the walls and then we can get the poplar on and covered with felt and we have a watertight annex!!! That is the plan all being well.

Looks like the weather is passing so hoping for a sunny day tomorrow.

Back to the gite for lots of catch up stuff, and a leisurely night.
