No longer grey!
We went by car today twelve (hilly) miles to Kirkmichael and had a cuppa in the village community shop and cafe.
It was so warm, we could have worn shorts...but didn't trust it to stay warm!!
Back home,Pirate has swapped some old hen shed panels for four metal roof sheets, to add to his shed roof and keep the rain out. He has worked out where they will go...now we need a bit less breeze to fit them! The breeze was useful to dry the washing, so no complaints. Our neighbour made a small chicken coop/nesting box from the old hen house panels!
I cleaned out the kiln ready for mending. The next step is to work out the size of ply needed, and what we can use to press the bulging wall back together once it has been kiln cemented.
A reverse clamp is the nearest description..in building terms it would be an acroprop, but we need to press horizontally not vertically.
