The day after we were supposed to leave the EU but our wonderful politicians have made such a mess of things it is going to be delayed. So much for promises and democracy! I will leave that aside as I don’t want to end up venting my anger on here. Although I did some work on the garage door yesterday I posted nothing about it. I didn’t mention either that I had my second drive around the garden……..on the new lawnmower! The grass needed cutting again but I also wanted to see how much the ramp alteration made a difference to getting it out of the garage and on to the path. I actually drove it out despite the narrowness of the doorway. That as you know is in the process of redesign. So yesterday (29 Mar) I got this far with the door..
The plywood partly covers the square hole at the top so that when the glass is inserted it acts as a stop. In the next pictures you can see what I did today (Saturday).
The frame on the outside of the hole, that is on the outward face of the door adds to that stop. When the glass is fitted later there will be a frame of wood fixed on the inside edge so that the glass cannot be pushed in from the outside. The plywood has been both screwed and nailed in place. The next stage will involve applying a wood preserver followed perhaps with and undercoat and top coat of paint, though I haven’t as yet decided on the paint or even its colour. I spent about three hours each of the two days before stopping work. At least the heavy work is now completed,
