You know that this HH girl loves any festivity or occasion. So little wonder I have been in a good mood all week. However, we did not have to go to the EKKA as we have our own show happening HH way. And it was a week full of milestones met.
Now that we have torn down the roof, we had to start putting it together again
So I learnt a lot about trusses this week. And just how difficult it was to get roof trusses into the HH driveway!
This truckie was a legend!
Then of course trusses need their friend the crane to do the hard work - another challenge for HH access!
But once all those logistics had been sorted, truss transfer was underway
To trussed - it was a happy day
and the old and the new trusses spent time getting to know each other
Even Chimney HH looked less lonely with trusses alongside for company
The trusses even looked good from underneath
Of course I had to publicly declare my love for them
But trussing is hard work and I had to look after my men - so there was energy fuelled morning teas to keep them going
Builder Boy HH set the pace (I think he has done this before!)
Painting and prep
I thought the palings were quite lovely - rather like paddlepop sticks!
We sought inspiration from the stairs inside Hanworth House when deciding what should go between the scalloped palings
And just look at what they became - simple, just like the rest of our Green Lady.
So it started to look pretty good
I showed my appreciation
In the next instalment - stay tuned for roofing - I know, I'm on the edge of my seat too with excitement!
