It is a good feeling to get back into the groove and feel an appetite to resume the renovations. I seem to go on a big surge and get loads done in a short space and then go into vegetable mode while I build up the enthusiasm for the next rush.
One of the difficult things for both Donna and I is working while people are on holiday. There are two reasons for this. 1. because the last thing we want to do is disturb out guests while they are relaxing. 2. With it being hot (sometimes) and August we feel we should be able to rest a bit too.
Luckily for us our current guests have said they do not mind us getting on with things. Donna and I marked up and cut the wood into a rough form yesterday and today I prepared it by planing and thicknessing.
