Another couple of beautiful Saturdays at Glentui, calm and warm late autumn days. We had a good crowd of helpers, some from out of town, which is always great as it strengthens the national feeling of the project. Between the seven of us we were able to achieve alot. Some headed down to the trees to weed the grass away from around the base of the young plants. Grass sends out a growth inhibitor and will stop the trees from growing so fast. They are looking fantastic. We see how they do over the frosty winter.
The other work gang concentrated on the cladding. It became trickier the higher we got. Much like a jigsaw puzzle, fitting bits in and around two roof angles and also the windows. Luckily there was someone taller than our regular builder as it was more than a tiptoe job for him to fit the very top piece on.
We will fit the final bits of the jigsaw next weekend.
