WORK BEGINS ON THE CABIN BEAMS 13th January
In order to fit the beams for the cabin roof ,first a support to seat the beams on needs to be fixed to the cabin sides.
Here the port (left) support is screwed and glued in place and the first notch cut to receive the cabin beam.
The opposite support (right) is treated in the same manner.
Apprentice Dave is finishing off plugging the screw holes ready for Phil to sand down.The iroko dust is very fine and gets everywhere even when using face masks !
The beam shelves are complete and although not visible,the cabin beams are being prepared out of shot.
Today was the first really cold day with start temperatures of 3 degrees.
Adrian from the saw mill came today to note our wood needs in the near future.He is always positive and helpful !
