Wood house work.

To work on the wood house appealed to me from the first moment I saw it. I can understand and even contemplate building things from wood. The concrete and metal structure that makes up the main house is rather alien to me. Last September Vanja and I made an abortive attempt to paint the worn patches but rain soon stopped that. I have made it my mission to protect the wood house before this years winter strikes. I have been lucky with the late warm weather, today was blue skies and sun, in mid November!! but we all know… winter is coming!

No caption required.

Anyway below are some images from this last week of my mission’s progress. I am now working on the outer wall that is under the “balcony” roof and so potentially I can continue even in the rain but its much quicker and more enjoyable to do such work bathed in the warmth of the sun.

The last window to get the red and black treatment!
The last outer bit of wall prepared for painting.
Its not called Polyfiller over here, but Akrilin and comes in white, coffee and chocolate colours.
This beam needed a lot of filler!
The end of the yellow is nigh.
My paint, and my preparation tools and stuff for filling holes.
