Today, we woke up to more snow and deeper freezing temperatures! It never rose above -3°C all day and it now fallen even lower to -6°C! We had snow yesterday but now we have at least doubled the thickness out there! Even if we finished creating the two rafters we have to do in the […]
Work on doing the rafters was postponed while Shaun recovers from his muscles injuries. The recovery is going well. With the weekend here now, he should see him have enough time to gain his physical health back again and start doing some light duty work on Monday.
Work has been patchy over the last three days, with other commitments on Thursday, rain all day Friday and also rain in the afternoon of Saturday too! Erk! We didn’t have any other jobs lined up as we didn’t have the “N” rafter (number 6) installed so we could measure the next set of rafters […]
This afternoon, having completed the production of the four rafters (for the “P” and “N” sections), we couldn’t go outside as it was snowinging quite hevily!!

It is Christmas!! We have blitzed the whole workshop, to tidy it up and make it as clean as possible, ready for having our family around to celebrate this festive moment of the year! The completed “P” rafters, all eleven (and one little chunk of timber!), are now outside in the middle of the house, […]
During the manufacturing of rafters on Thursday, 3 days ago, Shaun suffered a twinge in his lower back muscles and had to slow down. Fortunately, we had only one session left to do to complete and by careful positioning and movement, he was able to complete the task of squeezing the rafters while being nailed […]
