step by step
All of my handyman projects commence their life
as little more than a doodle,
which is then further refined by adding
some rough measurements.
Then I check what available timber I have in my shed
and what timber I need to purchase.
At this point, measurements are still flexible.
By flexible I mean if I have an 1800mm piece of timber
but have measurements for two pieces a 920mm
I would trim the 920 to 900mm as was
done when building kennels.
The reverse scenario also applies.
This avoids much wastage and odd lengths sitting
on my timber racks waiting to be used.
There is no flexibility left after these decisions
have been made.
With the box constructed…
…the owner was asked in
for one final inspection…
…and a sniff of approval…
…prior to the roof being added.
With a certificate of occupancy, being approved
by the tenant, then and only then,
are owners allowed their first sleep in their new home.
Naturally soft furnishings are added as required
