|Chris's Genever & Pugh|
Work continued on the gates and piers. The sun was shining and the cuckoo calling from the oak tree overhead - pretty perfect working conditions! Hanging the gates on sloping ground and ensuring their levels matched in every way was not easy work so, in order to maximise flexibility, the hinges were put on in situ. Having done that, it was time to get out the creosote - despite much stick from a certain builder! Half way through, Chris P. arrived and helped to lift on the massively heavy stone pier caps. These were bedded on a layer of mortar (which I shall be brushing off first thing tomorrow!) We also hope to finish the 2 centre uprights and make a catch tomorrow - weather permitting. In the meantime, my gate design has been given the thumbs up and helping to make them has been great fun!
