i decided that easter weekend would be a good time to start replacing all the rotten wood on my gipo

the weather is normally great over easter and i cant find someone with a big enough garage so it will have to be done outside

so its Thursday today i am freezing cold and wet , the tarpaulin i have ordered wont be here till tomorrow and my wall boards still haven't turned up ,

not going to take the side of till tomorrow but got a bit done 90% of the wood will have to be replaced !!

heres the reason its all mouldy inside its had a proper bodge on the roof will try to replace the whole roof once i find an ally supplier

for now it has been sealed up

why its raining i am varnishing all the cupboards and

sniffing varnish

will keep the pics coming if i dont freez to death

i thought i had better update this , i have been a bit slow as have got a bit envolved in a new bathroom at home lol
 
well both sides are now done with new boards and any wood replaced where neccesary
 
have made a start on the roof , think i have sourced some new ally for the roof , but till thats ready i am starting the boards ,
