So we are in lockdown here which has made it a little tricky to procure recycled timber. Luckily the loop hole is I’m able to work through as I’m an essential worker. Therefore I’ve been able to get bits and pieces here and there. Needless to say it’s been tricky though. A very small issue compared to what a lot of people are going through though so I’m certainly not complaining. It is what it is.
I am able to do “click and collect” from the local hardware store though which is good.
I’ve put in the first layer of fence palings for the floor. One half was recycled timber the other half is some new treated pine I got from the hardware store.
I’ve also made a start on the second layer which I’m installing in the opposite direction to the first layer to give the whole thing a lot more strength.
That’s as far as I can go for now until I get some more recycled timber. Not sure when that will be but I’ll keep my eyes open as I travel the mean streets of my local neighbourhood.
I put in a hook for my Kuksa. Haha. You’ll have to Google image what a Kuksa is.
I also put an old rusted nail in the wall to hang my new skillet on haha.
I started filling the gaps between some of the timber’s but miscalculated how much filler I needed but at least it’s a start.
I also finished the internal side of the wall with the round (porthole) window.
So the project is still moving ahead with great momentum.
Stay tuned for more.
