Working in another garden

Jackie and I went to Marian’s this week to help her convert old decking and an even older scaffolding plank table into a woodstore.  Marian had already found a near neighbour who had a palette available, so that provided the airy base, held above the earth on bricks and tiles as well as basic dimensions.  Coffee and conversation came up with a basic plan that was refined as we went.  About 5 hours later we had finished the store for a cubic metre of firewood.  Marian will coat the whole thing with a shed/fence preservative when it has had a chance to dry out – some of the decking had been on the soil for a while.  The only purchase was a tube of waterproof gap-filling glue to seal the spaces between each of the decking board roof elements.  A remarkably satisfying days activity.
