We made the most of the glorious weather over these three days, and managed to apply the final top coat to the east, west and north walls at first floor level. This was followed by touching up the brown where it meets the cream, and we made a start on the final coat on the east side window frames.
However by the Wednesday afternoon it was too hot up on the scaffold in the sun where it was recorded at +35C phew.
At ground level more rotten timber was identified, which included a large piece replaced on the main beam at the northeast corner.
