I was out on site on Sunday instead of Saturday.
This was due to one of our cats being attacked by a stray and needing to be taken to the vet - Tigga is looking a bit sad and sorry for himself at the moment but he will be ok.
Today I removed the temporary platform.
This took all day as the steel cutting process was quite tricky.
I had purchased a 300 mm blade for my reciprocating saw and this made it easier to perform flush cuts.
However, a certain amount of tidying up was still needed after each cut and I needed to complete this while I still had a fragment of the platform to work off.
Jim was very helpful and grabbed each freed purlin as it was released.
At last we can walk from the street level to the undercroft level with ease.
I am keeping the steps covered with old sheets at this stage as they are still raw, untreated timber and will mark very easily.
It would take a lot of time to oil them correctly and at this stage I need to install the gyprock in the stair well as soon as possible.
I will do some research to see if there is a commercial product (some sort of tough paper ?) that I can cover the steps with.
