The little jobs that hang around

Standard

These small finishing jobs are beginning to build up and I’ll lose track of them very soon as they disappear down the cracks of memory and time.

But first

I must add the Ray Storey Tudor Torch that I’ve so carefully hoarded for the last three to four years.  Originally bought second hand, I first had it up in the Great Hall, then realised that it wasn’t the best place for it, so into the plastic tub it went and thence safely into a drawer for just this purpose – torch light at the front door.

I like to add lighting gel to spread the light about a bit

Back to those less enjoyable jobs

Gaps

and edges

Waste not want not and yet more bricks

Continuously sealing the new surfaces

New brick panels in place need pointing round the outer edges but first – must seal both the wood and the bricks (again) to reduce the white smears and any possible colour bleeds

The section of brickwork at the top is a try-out of the old bricks.  I’m still thinking about it in small panels up there.
