Today the weather was kind to us but only until about 3pm and then it decided to rain. Most of the day we worked on the shed and when the rain came we worked on finishing off some of the niches.
Anthony worked really hard again today and the strain of it all was showing. I know it’s incredibly frustrating when you’re doing all you can and nothing seems to be working, or the panels aren’t straight, or you drill screws in the wrong place and you’re left with “Swiss cheese” as Anthony likes to exaggerate. Watching him throw tantrums is hard and I don’t like seeing him that stressed out. This is the reality of building when you aren’t a builder I guess. It also makes it difficult to want to continue doing what we are doing, but I know we can’t quit, not when the house is in the state that it’s in.
The shed now has a bit of a front, gutter brackets in place, the roof pitch has been angle grinded off and we got a small section of roof up before it started to rain. I braved being at the top of a scaffold, holding sisilation in place. I’m not that comfortable with heights, but I knew that Anthony was really struggling on his own. There is still parts of the front to angle grind off to make way for the roller door. Flashing, roof, gutters and downpipe to be installed, also cutting out the PA door. Seeing that the weather is again forecast to rain, I don’t think we will see a finished shed by tomorrow.
While the weather turned and Anthony was working away at the shed, I made use of my time and finished off the grouting of 3 niches, as well as removed the pvc trim. I think it’s looking really good and am in love with the charcoal hexagon mosaic with the ultra white grout. We just need to add the retro fit trims and those niches are done!
Tomorrow I think we have to play it by ear depending on the weather, also we have no babysitter on Sundays, so juggling my time between looking after our kids and working on the bathrooms, is tricky. Our daughter isn’t the easiest to handle either as she is at the stage of wanting to grab everything in the house and is always falling over.
On another note, our frameless shower screens are in. They look amazing and they feel fairly spacious. The guys still need to come back though to add some finishing touches, more silicon and a bar at the bottom of the doors to stop water getting out.
