Ready for the concrete
You haven't left much room for the mother in law!
There was enough - nicely buried now
If you put her in in pieces rather than whole, it compacts down nicely.......... mwahahahahaha
While your at it, make it a little wider.
Friday and today
Where’s the duct for the lectric cable?
Photo #2 did you dig a hole to bury that mound of spoil?
Back right corner
The 12x2 shuttering got recycled as raised veg beds and most went in those, the rest in new flowerbeds - it was decent topsoil.
Damm, is it too late to book a place for the wife
Looking good there Rusty, brickwork looks neat to my eyes at least.
Cheers - I'm pleased enough with it - not done much brickying, and I'm sure a real bricky would think it pretty average, but I think it will be OK - the blockwork will all get hidden under cembrit cement plank cladding. I'm better with wood, but as we cancelled all our hols this year and I had the time, thought I would have a go myself...
Great project. what is your day job mr rusty? I thought you were a brickie from the first few pics.
Sales Director for an SME. But 40 years of serious DIY and have always had a go at anything. These days youtube and forums (and companies own "how to install our products" downloads) is such a mine of information that the technical knowledge you need to do anything is out there. I've built a few garden walls in the past but nothing previously above about 8 courses...
Far side roof already slated - 1/4 way down the other side. Coming along - very pleased with how it's going - biggest building project I have ever done myself (with significant other's help).
BTW, I know that last top slate is twisted - it's coming off.....
Very nice. Well done.
Tidy that. Didn't fancy doing it properly with a wet verge then? Nice job.
No, its the kytun dry verge - saw someone using it and thought it looked really neat https://www.kytun.com/c/slate-dry-verge/7
As you see, I'm using slate hooks too, which for a DIY slater I think is much easier.
