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:
