house renovation – main front gable

We took the scaffold down today because H has finished the main front gable.

Almost repeating the renovation plan from the north west gable in that the sheets and battens were replaced. Except that there are always fiddly bits to be found and recover from as you go.

We had to wait until a piece of material was machined for the bottom batten. Unfortunately, this was just before Christmas, so we had to wait until the new year before we had all the battens. Lesson from this, is make sure that have all materials for the job before you start.

The intention is to finish the gables and other uppermost sections of the house before we render the walls. The screw holes on the bottom batten have not been filled so that the batten can be removed prior to rendering.

Other work needs to be done on the verandah so we will do the south east gable next rather than the other front gable over the verandah.
