Back at the house on Saturday for some more building. It was a beautiful day albeit a little chilly but the sun shone all day.
We needed many hands for this as countless nails, we called them button nails, had to be hammered in place at 16" intervals marked by black diamonds on the wrap.
All the openings in the walls had to be cut out and the edges protected by folding the wrap over them and nailed in place.
Sunday was a miserable day. I had been hoping to take the new bike out for a test ride but the thick fog put paid to that. There was also a very fine but constant drizzle throughout the day, not ideal weather to be outdoors at all. So I just went for a short drive around the country lanes hoping to maybe check out a couple of abandoned houses but after standing outside the car for more than a couple of minutes, the fine rain was soaking me and I worried about my camera so I only took a few quick shots as I slowly trundled round the lanes.
