Shakes and ladders.
After a bit of a quiet day yesterday (75 mph winds excepted) it was time today to turn to work of a more physical nature. A quick drive into Cheshire to collect a couple of copies of my surviving window surrounds means much grunting and groaning up scaffolding and shaky ladders come Monday morning. If these two work as good as I expect, then it is off back to Cheshire to order another dozen which when lime rendered in after the frosts, should leave the house looking rather smart. Also on the cards next week is demolition and rebuilding of one wall of main kitchen plus demolition of extension on gate lodge...lots of work and an even lighter wallet!
