After testing out my routing and rebating of the cross beams, I had organised for these to be sprayed on Monday in my absence.
This all went ahead seamlessly.
After giving the beams 3 days to dry out after their spraying - it was time to coat them with primer to retain the chemical.
I organised to work from the building site for the day.
During work breaks I carried the beams up to the street level and placed them on carpentry horses.
During my lunch break I applied a coat to one side.
Then at the end of the working day I applied one coat to the other side.
I have been hearing rumours of a total lockdown for the Covid19 virus - it may never happen.
However, I really wanted to bolt the beams in place and take some critical measurements so that I had plenty to carry on with at home.
I organised with my client to work on site on Friday and do their work on Saturday.
This worked out well and I achieved about two thirds of the tasks I was hoping to complete.
