got a pressure washer with a Lomardini in it ..... bloody thing

As for the shed Scoff .....
you get me some decent weather organised and I might have enough of a flat area to actually get summat done towards it

If it don't rain tonight I might actually get the corner tidied up tomorrow, from the session before crimbo, shifting the boulders and spoil
Ground was looking damned near drive-able this evening !!

Half a day out yesterday .... the middle half .... so day shot !!

got back to find .......



obviously hadn't had the best of rides !!!!!!



too late to do much with it last night, plus it was treatment night, so was a job for today .....



assembled 'em up, with a check valve, for a CLRV to help the motor survive a shut off and allow it to run down.



QCs arrived this afters, so got them on too and it'll get collected tomorrow, for some hedge slaughtering, 'fore the end of the month.

We'll see how it all performs, before a final 'tidy up', on routing and retaining supports !

managed to get a bit more done between the 'plumbing job' .....

frame set out



and the infill laid in to get some accurate dimensions to work out the spacings....



then started to drop 'em in



'til I ran out of bench



which is a bit of a PITA in anyone's book !!!!!!!

so 'twere time to end for end it .....



and get t'other end filled up .....



solidly stitched and up it goes for a weld up



parked awaiting completion in the morning .... ran out of tanners for the meter on the 'big yeller fing' ..... so the lights went out !!



been real still today, so ...... dug out me MB15 torch and threaded up the new toy ..... so much easier, tacking up with the MIG ......
and nailing it together afterwards.
Nice small torch and shroud on the 15 .. perfect for this sort of job.
It'll get finalised in the morning, then I can get the base plates drilled and fitted to the uprights, all ready for a collection.

BIL's going to have to do the corner joint himself on site.
no way is it gonna fit on his van's roof rack in one L shaped piece ...
Plus it'd be a bitch to get into where it has to go, in one piece, even if you could lift the bloody thing ... way too awkward !!

That'll get Pam off my back too
BIL may not be so pleased to hear it's ready ..... he'll have his missus and his daughter on his case, to fit it next !!

Then, if it's still dry enough under foot ....... 'Drema time and clean up the corner, so's I can get back on the rock bed and see about losing the rest of yon oak.
That'll compensate Gareth (BIL) for making him fit this ..... he asks every time I see him; when're we going to finish said tree. He had a whale of a time, on the first part.
