In a bid to finish off the planking for the ceiling, we spent today boraxing the final planks - about 32. Yes - Dave has at last had to pick up a paintbrush! It didn't take him long to realise what a long job this has been. After building up a backlog of treated planks I started giving them their whitewash.
Can't believe I didn't take a photo of Dave paintbrush in hand, you'll just have to make do with another view of the 'ship hiding in the grasses.
