A second flash
While winter days in Canberra are often sunny they are usually cold. In contrast, this weekend on site it was jeans and T-shirt weather. Installing the flashing on the northern veranda was the ideal job for this time of year and it went perfectly and in half the time it took to do the same job at the back.
So, now the front veranda is officially finished. It has guttering, lights, flashing, paving and some hoof prints where a cow has walked across it.
Next job on the list is installing the upstairs flooring. 85 square meters of tongue and groove eucalypt floorboards, glued and secret nailed. The big question now is whether to buy a cheap nailer or hirer a good one - the price is about the same.
