Still recovering from an intense week of working so a bit slack in logging what I have been doing.
It's all a bit muddled in my head - so here is a description of what has been done with no particular dates.
I fixed off the back wall sheet in the toilet.
I found that the screws initially provided did not work well for me - they were intended for fixing in to metal and I am going in to pine.
I visited the supplier and they gave me a handful of wood fixing screws to try out.
These, of course, do not have the ability to cut through 9 mm of fibre cement - so I marked up all the fixing positions, predrilled and counter sunk each hole and then fixed off the the wood screws.
This worked out very well.
On another visit I cut each sheet down to 2670 mm and one sheet in half.
Placing the sheets is a two person job.
Being on my own I had to improvise.
I hung a chain block from a bridging bracket and made up a timber clamp to apply just above the centre of balance on each sheet.
Hoisting the sheets up on my own went surprisingly well and I was able to lift a full sheet and half sheet in to position.
I have left the work at this stage as I needed to revisit the supplier and obtain a full box of wood screws to proceed any further.
While I was there I also picked up the tape, base coat and top coat for the joint flushing.
It's many years since I have done this - so I will have to watch some YouTube to refresh my memory.
