I didn't seem to achieve much today.
Firstly, I needed to spend quite a while gathering up all my scattered tools.
Secondly, I intended to arrive out on site around mid morning so that the remaining areas to paint were dry and warm.
Finishing off the second coat took a few hours, followed by a coffee around at Jim and Sandy's.
After this, I took detailed measurements for every window and door of any projections beyond the facing.
I will use this information to work out the rebates for each architrave.
Again a late start because 10 am is the starting time for making noise on a construction site on a Sunday.
Lots of little painting details.
I cut back the temporary roof behind the front door so that I could test out the infill sheet.
It fitted perfectly.
After this, I worked my way around every window and rasped back any planks that projected too far to fit under the architrave rebates.
I applied primer to the raw timber and a few hours later a top coat.
Also the door frame received another coat to the overhead architrave and to the main upright studs.
After coffee with Jim and Sandy I also applied top coat to the edges of the planks at the corners of the house.
I completed two more of the larger window infills.
I'm afraid these are getting heavier and heavier - I could see a bow in the chipboard and so added some vertical battens to straighten them out.
Linda gave the door and two window infills two coats of paint
