Ruddy weather!

Try as I might, I just can’t get the bloomin’ tool store finished! And it’s all down to the weather, which is constantly holding me back. This morning we had frost and freezing fog, so hardly the best conditions to be working outside in. And I’ve also found in the past that it’s in conditions like those that you often have accidents when using power tools.

We then had a light flurry of snow and by the time that had stopped, it was gone 2.00pm by the time I was able to start work. So not enough time to finish the whole project as making and fitting the corner trim pieces is all fabrication work, which I’ve found all the way through takes much more time than I originally thought that it would.

But anyway, I got two of the four completed and fitted and was pleased with the results as the pictures that I took before it got too dark show.

So just the two back ones to do tomorrow if the weather plays ball and then all that I’ll be able to do this side of the new year I think, unless we suddenly enter a longish warm, dry spell, is fill all the gaps with mastic. That will then only leave painting the building with weatherproofing liquid to do, and I can’t say that I’ll be sorry 😉
