Another Project Completed

The patio was completed this morning when the boxing was removed and the faux lines cut into the surface of the limestone.  the last task was to apply a water based surface sealer.  This will need to be reapplied every 2-3 years to keep the surface in good condition (ie, no discolouration or stains).

Replacement of the pavers should mean no more weeds or ants!

We are going to wait three days for the surface to harden before returning all the furniture.

I’m still digging out the lawn one row each day.  The limiting factor is starting to be the amount of turf I can fit into the weekly ‘wheelie bin’ collection. Smile

The temperature is starting to rise with the possibility today will be the hottest day in November since records were kept.  On the other side of the country bush fires are raging on a 1000km front.  That’s the length of the UK.

Jan already has all the blinds drawn and exterior doors closed, with one air conditioner working.  With 6.4kW of solar panels on the roof we don’t have to worry about the cost of running the air conditions on a sunny day.  One problem with an ‘open-plan’ house is you must either heat or cool all of it.  We’re going to partially solve that problem with my next project which is to install a door to the lounge room.  Today’s inside job will be to measure and estimate the project materials.
