Pass me a hod

Here are the versi bricks and slates I told you about earlier.


4,000 bricks to apply !!

only 500 slates to get in place

for the ridges on the dormer windows

lead flashing for around the dormers

thought I would consider this

I don't tend to use paper for walls or floors though I have seen it done well.  With that in mind I thought I would consider this for the pavement and the areas (outside space) in the basement.  Very good quality - quite heavy and nicely matt.  I am tempted to cut up each paver though and stick in place?????

    1. I am hoping I made a bonkers calculation. Nearly finished the smaller door and haven't used one pack. Sometimes its good to be an idiot. Keep the sympathy coming though. Marilyn

    1. Hi Sharon,
      Certainly am - currently brick sticking until I can no longer stand to do it. Reckon it is taking about an hour to do a hundred??? I did say I wanted this project to last! Marilyn

  3. Well, Marilyn, have you set yourself a task and a half? It'll look fantastic when it's done though - just keep that thought in mind!

    1. Truly don't mind doing it. No idea why that is as I hold the world record in low boredom threshold. I suspect it is an excuse to listen to the radio and otherwise turn the brain off. Another week should see these doors finished, then there is more of the same but different - if you see what I mean. Nice to see you. Marilyn
