Something’s not right

Re: Am Not Coping

Thanks a lot @Zoe7 that helps & confirms my gut feeling (& husband agrees)....But @Zoe7 aren’t you supposed to be constructing right now?! Thanks for taking time to be supportive & best wishes to Toby 🐱 & you for the task ahead.

Except today is Sunday so not today lol

Re: Am Not Coping

First jobs done - have foamed up gaps that needed to be done. finally got a scre out of a shelf that was proving difficult and chipped off concrete that was in the way of putting ip part of the frame - small break then back into it @Sam3 @Hamsolo01 @Sherry. The next job is a big one cutting down an already existing sheet on the wall so I can attach the next sheet to the existing frame. Going to need planty of breaks as it is already getting warm out there.

Toby was going bananas - there must be a skink in the garage and he was trying to find it lol - the little skink was definitely hiding from him - smart skink - I don't know what Toby would do if he actually found it - Cat is the one that likes to play with skinks - Toby just barks at them - soooooo brave NOT lol

Re: Am Not Coping

Just saw the photos @Hamsolo01 - seems like we are both dealing with the lizard family today lol

Re: Am Not Coping

Well done on finishing the first job @Zoe7 💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼

Re: Am Not Coping

Second job done @Sam3 - cut down the existing sheeting so the next sheet can be fixed on the same beam - will make it straighter and also more secure and with no gaps. It is going to be tricky to cut the new sheet to fit around the concrete but once that one is done the next 3 will be easier. Getting the first one straight and level is essential. Bigger break now until I do the next part of the frame - maybe get something to eat as well. How is your job hunt going?

Re: Am Not Coping

Wow @Zoe7 go you good thing!!  I wouldn't know where to start with that sort of renovations.  Last year bro taught me how to use a drill and an orbital sander but I haven't done it since.  Managed to go 55 years without even learning how to use a drill!

Re: Am Not Coping

wow , way to go @Zoe7 Smiley Very HappyHeart

Re: Am Not Coping

Been doing this kind of thing most of my life @eth - taught myself at an early age how to use most tools. Have also done most renovations on my own but I will need help with putting the sheets up on the wall when I finish getting the frame built as they are quite large. I'll measure, cut and pre-drill each sheet and have them ready to go when my sister can come around and give me a hand then it will be a matter of her holding them while I glue and nail them on. Today I just want the framing completed and the area tidied up so I can do the sheets tomorrow. There is too much for me to get it all done today.

What are you up to today?
