Lester, bless him, bought me these...
.....so I could start doing this...
So here is the lounge,
and the big patch you see
is the start of the new project,
and that is to get all the old lime render
off the walls.
I fear it is going to take quite some time.
We hoped that we had decent stone walls,
but it looks like we don't.
And I don't know how the walls have stood,
being made of bits of stones and tiles,
how they have stood,
I ask myself,
for over two hundred years.
Anyway, this is how far I got last night.
At least I had started.
Lots of chipping away to do,
so best to do an hour or so per day,
don't have time to do more,
don't want to do more,
because of the number of times
I missed the head of the chisel
with the mallet,
and hit my thumb.
Not to worry,
found some thick work gloves,
which seemed to stop the sting
when I inadvertently hit myself,
which was not often
as I got better with my aim.
It took me an hour to from the first photo,
to this one.
Ah well, at least we have started the lounge,
which is good.
I should also build up some good arm muscles,
Little steps get the job done!
Hope you have a good Sunday,
