Weekly Photo Challenge: Transition (I)


Friday 27 November, 2015 by Uncle Spike

FOUR IMAGES – My first entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge is the creation of our reading room at the top of the house. It took me some 60 hours painstaking work to double coat woodstain all the wood of the roof, but the result even today still seems worth it. This post takes you through four stages of the transition.

Hope you enjoy this entry.


Stage 1:  Untreated wood and bare steel joists


Stage 2:  Wood covered joists; first coat stain almost done

Roof room 2


Stage 3:  Second coat complete; walls undercoated

Roof room 3


Stage 4:  Job done. Time to sit and read… yeah right, when?

Roof room 4
