Walter is a little tipsy turvy
Although jacked up on concrete hard standing and the spirit level says Walter is straight!!, the floor isn’t straight or flat, he has had a hard life treated not so gently
by divers and passengers alike. The whole floor slopes gently in directions away from the drainage outlets!!
The rubber flooring is glued onto hardboard and is in places lifted and has water damage underneath. I have decided to put down an underfloor of 9mm plywood to strengthen and flatten the floor before putting the underlay and final wooden flooring on top.
Oohh, my second Youtube video. Nailed, glued and precision cut it! OO
This weekend my sister, brother in law and nephew
popped over for a physically distanced catchup.
An ideal opportunity to get others thoughts on the floor plan as I am having problems squeezing everything in.
A good question from Oli,
Why have a central island and not just a regular oven and hob? Aahhh, but I have a good answer. I want the oven to be high, much easier and safer to move food in and out of it. Also, a central island will break up the corridor effect, separating the entrance food prep area from the dining and cine viewing area. So with heads together we how have a slightly changed floor plan which is really cool. An L shaped area which breaks the viewpoint and allows for a high hob. There is also space to move comfortably around all areas, not bump into the wood burner AND an extra work surface. I love it.
Wind, Rain, Storms!
A fantastic day to make an i-movie
about the painting of Walter so far and
share it with you.
Just thought I’d share a stormy photo first.
Gorgeous huh? The light, the clouds, shade,
wind, the smell of the sea and of lightening
and fish and chips as I near the quay.
Ok, so today I am treating you to an all singing all dancing video including, chickens and Barley the Lurcher. Hang on to your seats.
Ok relax, the video file is too big. Plan B
So uploading into drive and embedding the code as a link didn’t work ….. On to Plan C
Start my Youtube Channel and link to that. See you next week!!!!!
Ohh much easier, so sit back and enjoy.
Agghhh, I have spent the entirety of yesterday, a rainy day, trying to work out which systems and which electrical bits and bobs to buy. During the lockdown, I have been enjoying a little online shopping flutter, I bought some nice jeans and am now awaiting my Merrells. But, how can I tell from a trade catalogue what the downlights, spotlights, switches, connectors, cables, the solar flipping panel is like? I need to get close and personal to really see if it is what I need.
I have created what I think is the wishlist
for my solar needs, seems a rather pricey way to suck the energy from the sun and into my water and electrical batteries. Thank goodness for specialists who I can talk to… Mmmm maybe later, it’s 5.30am and I been have up for an hour, awoken by the rising sun hitting the newly inserted aluminium window inserts, which ricochets directly into my bedroom. Wake up world, it’s a lovely day.
The specialist has replied. This is the edited printable version…..
Do not buy any of it.
Item 1 – Too expensive, check individual prices.
Item 2 – Don’t need, that type cable not required, too short.
Item 3 – Very poor quality, don’t need, already have.
Item 4 – Wrong Type, for flat roof.
Item 5 – Wrong Type, for flat roof.
Item 6 – Unnecessary, over-priced, pay for label, not for product.
Item 7 – Cheap China crap, will blow-up at any time.
Item 8 – Cheap crap, <400 cycles, only last a year.
