|The last week turned out to be a bit of an adventure. |
After a few phone call, someone going to Liverpool passport office for me and a ferry ride, I ended up going with a friend to work in France for the week!
|Leaving England behind|
Unfortunately the stairs were a nightmare to fit. Whoever had measured them to fit had given absolutely no tolerance to get them in. They had winders round a complete 180 degrees so things became a little difficult. It would have been much easier if they'd had gone in before the house was boarded or plastered. We got them in in the end but we did have to cut the wall in a few places to make them fit.
|These stairs were the most awkward I've ever fitted|
|Not much space to get them in|
|Balcony to be hand railed off|
|Clamping the handrail together with a quickly built clamp|
|The adjustable end of the clamp|
|Balcony handrail finished|
|Tom routing hinges out of the doors|
|Oak doors, pine linings and MDF architraves and skirting fitted.|
I learnt lots and got some good stories to tell, not much more you could ask for really!
