Highly successful evening as I finished cutting the joints into the bearers and assembled them into the completed frame. My daughter was not convinced that we were, as I believed, having fun lifting the pieces into place in the pouring rain.
I’ve now got to build the pillars into the swamp that will support the frame and decking. The rain is actually quite useful as at any given moment I can tell instantly whether the intended direction of drainage is working or not without the need to mess around with a spirit-level.
The plan is for it to be job-done by Sunday … and we can thus move into our outdoor summer …. I just need to find the ‘Beach boys’ CD and the sun-lounger. (eek, just looked at the above picture; does that fence seriously need creosoting or what!)
