Continuing the Cladding


The workshop cladding is coming along nicely ...much slower than either of anticipated, but then we didn't take into account the measuring needed around all six of the windows. 

WHY didn't we have just one enormous picture window on each of the two walls we wondered yesterday as Lovely Hubby measured and re-measured before cutting out all the little strips .... and then handed them over to me the new 'creosote queen of Llanrwst' to do my stuff and slap the evil smelling brown liquid all over both sides of the timber.


But slowly and surely we are getting somewhere, and hopefully next weekend will see even more improvement.


I did manage to get a bit of weeding done in the Net Tunnel yesterday too, it's looking nice and neat on this side now .... you don't want to see the other side do you?

  1. Hi Sue. Pretty sure you got smaller windows than one large one because the large one would have been very expensive, both to buy/install, but to replace/repair in the future. Also a smaller set of windows is much less industrial and gives the air of a cottage. The cladding is lovely and when you're done, you mostly likely will be very pleased. Your energy seems unflagging. Won't it be nice when you don't have anymore major projects on your plate? Take care....

  2. If one of those 6 windows gets broken you'll be glad you didn't opt for 2 big ones!

  4. Wood has such a lovely look about it much better than render.

  7. Cladding is never fun but a better job with two of you! On your own it's a nightmare.

  9. I'm tempted to come and help you slap the creosote on the timber, I LOVE the smell of creosote! Yeah, I accept it, I'm weird!

  10. DH nearlyweeping with serious shed envy! The cladding looks exactly the right finish and it will soon blend in to the landscape. Tedious work but good job done. Catriona

  11. The workshop is looking great, but I am very impressed with your net tunnel! So tidy, and what lovely greens you have growing there.
