|Peeling back the paint from the ceiling and beams
We brought in a couple of extra guys this week to have a go at the ceilings. Daniel and I did one small room but this work is tough on your shoulders. They made great progress and the ceilings are looking amazing. We were going to paint them but as you can see that would be such a travesty.
Because the beams were put in 'green' over the years these have split and twisted. These splits had been filled in with plaster but it wasn't too difficult to pick out the plaster and reveal the cracking or "checking" of these massive beams.
|We had the fire going too to warm us up
|Fireplace and sheet-rock wall to library
Plastering planned in a couple of weeks
|View to Library
|Center hall- not finished but you get the idea.
|This set of holes are still filled (about 1 inch across)
|More holes at the other end of the beam
