As always Steve, this thread is a monster (138 pages!!!!!! Wow!) - so much so that I think it needs a contents page.

I'm off now to try and find which page your roof detailing is on......

The tiling starts on p41.
I have a number of tiles left over if they are of any interest to you. Ray can't count...

I need to get some panel pins from Screwfix before then. They do some sheradised ones which we used on Ray's, and they were very good. I've already bought some bolts so we should be good to go.


Had to look up "Sharadised", invented by metallurgist Mr Sherard Osborn Cowper-Coles (son of naval inventor Cowper Phipps Coles) in 1900.
So, galvanised + zinc nails. Everyday is a school day.

All looking well Steve.

Wake up at the back there! :)

You may remember that the outside was left looking like this:

or rather, after we had grouted it, like this

Well that was November 2015. Last year, if you recall, summer didn't start until August and I was firing on only 3 cylinders, so nothing really got done, especially as I don't see the sides very often, it's my neighbours who have to put up with it.

But I didn't want it to go through another winter with no paint, so a week or two ago I went over Ray's and borrowed his scaffolding. It used to be his Dad's, so goodness knows how old it is.

The first thing I tried to do was smooth the grout. I assumed it would sand out, but it is like granite. An angle grinder might do it, but a sander certainly won't. So unfortunately, close-up it is not very pretty, texture-wise. But it is what it is.

The other problem is that this is a timber building that moves, and grout doesn't take movement very well. A lot of the grout has cracked and some of it has fallen out altogether. So I've had to rake out what I can and caulk it instead. I should have done that in the first place, I think.

So on Saturday I assembled the scaffolding (myself) and painted the RH wall (myself), then we had some rain, but yesterday and today I have painted the LH wall. No Ray, no mates, I did it on my own. The hardest part was moving the scaffolding around, TBH. The very fact that I felt I could even attempt it is a measure of how much better I feel these days. 3.99 cylinders, at least.

And to prove it

As you can see, I still don't exactly relish being up there.

So this is what it looks like now

If I'm honest it really needs a third coat, but I've had enough. It's not a dining room ceiling. And anyway I've run out of paint.

Looking at those photos now makes me wonder why I didn't stagger the cempanel boards, but heigh-ho, that's the way it is.

This might actually be The End.

The selfies [pics 3 & 4] look like your having some sort of blanched brain matter eruption!

"This might actually be The End."

No!
Not until you post a photo from the house back door showing a view that could grace "Homes and Garden"

Nice one Steve. Despite climbing mountains all my life and scrambling around on wee ledges with 'pronounced exposure' as I did so, I found age ( and declining eyesight?) has made even modest elevations slightly trickier and needing more respect.

Onwards and upwards!

Sam.
