The Orangerie - fibreglassing FINISHED!

This is where we don't want anything but evidence of your finest wood butchering in all its glorious, and photograph laden glory. Bring your finished products or WIP's, we love them all, so long as there's pictures, and plenty of 'em!

They got the forecast wrong and the temperature was just about there. Luckily the wind had been of help (for once) and dried out a lot of the remaining roof and more importantly got rid of any condensation from underneath the roof tarpaulin...when that condensation got bad, it rained in there!

So, finished the topcoat. I took a quick look at the first lot of topcoat and TBH it could do with another coat but that can wait until spring.

Having decided to wrap it up for the winter, it is quite cathartic to hear the wind ripping at the tarpaulins but not care ! :D

Great job Roger. This is not defeat - just a temporary tactical withdrawal so that you can fight another day. Hunker down for a Northumbrian winter and you'll be ready to attack the job with renewed enthusiasm in the spring. :obscene-drinkingbuddies:

Well, I've lost track of the storms and the various coverings. Spent a small fortune. Few months back, we were on covering Mark 3 or was it 4? Then Storm Dierdre came along and wrecked that. Or was it Storm Erik ? Dunno.

So I bit the bullet and followed Billybuntus's suggestion and got Vizqueen wrapped round it. Only problem was, no suitable sizes to cover the roof in one and so I relied on Vizqueen tape and thought I'd put some silicon in the join for added protection. Storm Fryea came and went and I thought 'Result'.

Gareth is now telling me who is actually boss. The roof covering and tape has been ripped off. Silicon does not stick to Vizqueen. Hey ho..past caring.

I have one final solution for the roof but will wait until Gareth has done his stuff.

Jesus...as I type this the sashes are rattling. It is blowing a Hoolie out there.

You could of sandwiched the visqueen between two pieces of timber and screwed through. Gorilla tape it over.
