Frivolously, we have continued to work on the gin terrace instead of making the house more airtight before winter. This has proved to be a good idea so far.

The met office are saying the warm weather could well last into October, so there’s no rush, and having a deck in this weather is making us all a lot happier.

We mounted the doors (and glazed them.)

tenons

And I finally got to try the tenon cutter Anna bought for my birthday years ago.

ready to assemble

Which made the spindles to go in the railing (made from a bit of holly Steve was kind enough to cut down for me) so fast and easy to cut.

mortices

Steven and I knocked the railing together out of mostly free bits, with surprisingly little trouble.

dinner

And we had a celebretory dinner on the lovely deck. Not quite done, but useable and looking so good it gave me a bit of a boost.

finished

This is the house I made.
