We actually saw the sun for a while this weekend, before the mist returned.
On the Palvan, the Yard side roof edge beam has been needle gunned clean and wire wheeled. A coat of primer has been applied to preserve it.
The CCT has actually had some woodwork applied to it! The new hardwood beams, prepared last week, have been installed and bolted up. With the beams in place new bottom planks have been affixed to the roof, returning the north end to a reasonable state. Further along, on the east side, more rotten beams have been found. These have been cut out and another hardwood beam prepared to slot back in. With the back of the steelwork exposed, we have taken the opportunity to wire wheel it clean and apply a coat of primer.
This will be the penultimate blog before Christmas (we are working Christmas Eve, all labour gratefully received), so we will finish by wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
