I took all sorts of pieces of steel, dexion shelving, steel for cleats and the welder out to Wooroloo arriving at 7.15 am.
My intention was to construct a jig to assist in the accurate positioning and installation of the veranda columns.
I had figured that if I did this work I could save maybe $2.5K on the job.
However, I am not feeling very well at the moment and after talking to Ross I decided it was better to leave the job in his hands rather than overextending myself.
I will fabricate the cleats during the week during work breaks.
Instead I spent most of the day attempting to clean up the timber from the tree felling.
Some pieces were two thirds the size of a fridge and I struggled to cut them up with my small chainsaw.
By the end of the day I was having trouble starting my chainsaw and later diagnosis found that the crankcase was leaking.
So - time to buy a new chainsaw unfortunately
