Table tennis!

Its amazing how much fun can you have on a building site - bring on the table tennis championship!  Steve, your scaffolding is endlessly useful!

Its a real mystery why we haven't finished the house yet after 2 1/2 years!

Limewash part 2

We have now had a go at mixing our own limewash on site.  We used hydrated lime mixed 2-1 with water.  When we mix the top coat we will add a small amount of raw linseed oil which will stop the surface being dusty.  It seemed to mix up fine - needed a good amount of mixing though.  So far so good!
