On the prior Wednesday I went to site early in the morning to drop off some scaffolding clamps I had recently purchased.
I had not visited for two weeks and I was horrified when I saw the height that the wild oats had grown to.
I came back again that afternoon, after work, and knocked down all the front tall grass with the brushcutter.
Back in July, James, a visiting Wwoofer had given the yard a very thorough mowing and this made my job much easier - I only had to cut down the clumps of wild oats.
I was out on site at the 7.00 am.
I fixed the most recent frame down to the deck using 4 bolts and rebated the temporary end frames to fit over the bolts.
I also completed the repair of the damaged stud on the previous frame by inserting an extra trimmer from the bottom up to the nogging.
I finished all this by 10.00 am.
After a break I spent another two hours knocking down all the wild oats in the back yard.
I returned home mid afternoon and started setting up for the last frame.
The first step was to mark out and rebate the top and bottom plates.
Next I placed the horses near the back door and squared them up.
I clamped on the plates and started to hand fit the studs at each rebate position.
This continued on during Sunday as well.
By Wednesday I had painted up all the components.
