There were no new postings for the last two weeks as we dealt with Christmas and New Year.
I spent this time working on our residence.
It has been badly neglected because all my time and energy has been going in to the Wooroloo project.
I have been cleaning up all the leaves and twigs and still have some way to go.
Also I would like to get our reticulation working again so I put a few days in to setting up the vegetable patch for Linda.
Once out at Wooroloo on Saturday I found it difficult to make a start and to have any clarity about my priorities.
I am still a little burned out from the big push to remove the pine trees and other fire hazards.
The first job that I was clear in my mind about was restoring the back wall doors.
Only two need any real assistance.
I made the mistake of letting these face the winter weather with only a primer coat.
The two most exposed doors had paint blistering and cracks appearing.
I was concerned that the bottom panel of these doors would need replacing.
However, once I took these doors down, laid them on carpentry horses and hit them with a belt sander I could see that the problems were much less severe than I feared.
I just needed a small amount of 2 pack epoxing to fill the cracks and then I will need to progressively apply primer and top coats.
In fact I have decided to give all the doors a subsequent coat of primer and then the top coat - a job to be performed in the background - a little bit each week.
Next I moved my attention to the loft floor.
I turns out that I had large quantities of rubbish and other materials lying around here.
Most of the day went of removing and sorting this.
I need to close of the access on the eastern side as this is a potential fire hazard.
At home I will start working on the sash frames and the missing doors.
