Brilliant storage solutions!

I made a couple of new racks to support some more recycled cassette boxes today, and invented a new hanging set of recycled milk bottles, ideal for things such as secateurs.

Basement roof finished!

Title may sound confusing…Basement? Well, years ago, when I started my printing business, it was from the basement of the house we used to live in. When we moved here, and built the workshop, the obvious name for it was Basement. Anyway, last year, I decided at try and fix the leaky corrugated roof…and thought that fixing a tarpaulin would be an answer. Three sides were completed, leaving just the back to do…which was done yesterday. Cutting the excess tarp, removing the gutter, stapling the tarp, refixing the gutter, job done! New coat of paint on the back door, and re-sealing the frame, now good for a few years more!

The resident inside will be happy!
