    A tidy up week

    Well I'm afraid that there has been a little break in spinney activities.
    Boss put her foot down and said something had to be done about wood storage encroaching on her domain.
    So having contributed some 254 hard earned pension funds at the local sawmill and builders merchants, the past week has been spent assembling said purchases into something to keep the rain out and shifting some of the scattered 'must keeps' into some form of order.
    Just hope I can remember where that piece I want next week was stacked at the back of the racks.

    Basic framing, roof joists and rack supports 88 X 38 mm.
    Feather edge ex. 25 X 150mm.
    50 X 25 mm slats for racks
    Three sheets of 3mm Onduline.
    125mm Rd Hd nails
    75mm wood screws
    50mm galvanized Rd Hd nails.
    All timber pressure treated at source.
    Just a bit of timber needed along the long side roof edge to finally tidy up the roofing fixing.

    Nice work Chas. You sure got a stock of wood there. But i guess a guy with your abilities can rip through that lot in no time. I guess it helps having the forests close to hand.

    Btw are the forests crown lands? Just wondering whether you have to get Her Majesties approval to take a downed log or two.

    No loss of garden space, just lost a small 'spare' Greenhouse that was under utilised these days . . Got another half acre to fill yet.

    ......That's about half of the stash, some still to be moved in, (there is still space in there honest) but as the rest is on my teritory Boss won't be cracking the whip too much.

    Mixture of private, wildlife/conservation organisations etc. Fortunately we have enough local friends that obtaining a supply is not a problem, mind you some of the more prominent land owners would be more difficult to deal with directly than Her Maj. but then you just have to be friendly with their estate workers instead.

    Nice storage and stash Chas. Sure does make my shop look like a mess though.

    That's alright, the shop and rest of storage is still a mess this end, can't risk too much of a culture shock all in one go.
