First taste of concrete after 325years! Wow.
Renovation Part X: Concrete, Windows and Firewood storage
This week we placed the window in the studio and the small window in the office-to-be.
I also prepared the small space to have the concrete poured. Now the complete space finally has a concrete floor for the first time in 325 years 🙂
Since I salvaged a lot of wood from the house, and I still have more to be removed from the attic, I have extended the garden cabin with a firewood storage. Most of the salvaged wood will be chopped into pieces and will give me warmth for two winters. … talking about ‘free energy’ 🙂 .
I bought a Makita 18V battery-powered planer (DKP181) and wow, what a nice tool. I planed all the old wood for the storage construction.
It’s not yet completely finished, it rained almost the whole day so I will finish it next week. My neighbour still had some roof cladding left from his previous renovation and it was exactly enough for my roof. I think the red and black combination on the roof looks nice.
Today I also started to render my special project wall! The part I did today took me about two hours. A lot of smoothing needs to happen in multiple layers. Not a bad result so far for someone who never opened a bag of cement in his whole life 🙂 .
In the second picture you’ll see two granite stones. These will stay visible and in the end the wall will be painted white.
That’s the update for this week, thanks for reading this post.
