Window frames... take 2

Fuzzy, AC and MOTH are hard at work finishing off the window and door frames with chickenwire.  All exposed wood must be covered by wire to ensure the render adheres, and frames finished to the right shape so the end result is asthetically pleasing to the eye.

Here are some before and after pics so you can see just how neat they are... the boys and girls are very proud of this... but some still require a bit of stuffing.


Stuffing required

Fuzzy has also enjoyed "shaving" the walls...   
with a whipper snipper.

As you may already be able to tell (due to lack of updates), this phase of the project has been ridiculously time consuming! ... partly due to MOTH's (paid) work commitments.  It is vital that all the nooks and crannies are filled and secure before rendering begins.

Fingers crossed it won't be too long before we can render.

R.I.P. Kimmi

It is with great sadness that we must tell you our dear Kimmi was put to sleep tonight.  She has had an awesome run of 19 years and was adored by her devoted family! 

Kimmi has been in renal failure for 8 months+ but it just all became too much for her.

We love you Kimmi...
