Waiting for the roofers

Standard

and creating havoc

These  are 1:1 sized roofers to amend a job done last year, so sat around for most of the morning waiting for them to travel up-country and carry out the works.

But first of all an amended set of shields looking less like an outbreak of spots I hope

Getting down to it

When I did get down to the 1:12 stuff it was late and decided on a smallish job trying out the lighting connections between the main building and the removable porch.  All seems more or less well.

Yes, there’s a however 

Before doing the lighting the two bits of building seemed to fit OK, nothing that wouldn’t be sorted as we progress.  And then all was light but the fitting together bit went totally to pot.  So I investigated this illogical and nonsensical anomaly.

Danger – craft knife being wielded

I should have known better but I didn’t, and therefore spent a long time making adjustments that lead to other adjustments etc.  Are we any nearer solving (a) the mystery of why and (b) the non-fitting problem itself?  A little I think, but what a mess I’ve made.

Something a little less silly

And the porch not looking too bad considering the hectic knife flourishes that have taken place

I thought at this point it might be wise to back off the whole thing (why didn’t you do that sooner I hear you ask).  Instead I offer up a photo of the porch plus the rest of that side of the building and, as an unsolicited bonus have popped in a labelled photo taken from the other end down the same side.  I couldn’t back off very far mind, the room’s not that big.

I had to climb into the shelves to get far enough away to take this 😉

For this shot I had to go into the corridor

I do hope it all makes some sense 🙂

Time for tea.
