Walls,electricity and some heating just in time!

I see it’s been 2 months since my last post!  I’ve been busy prepairing the downstairs rooms with the electricity before the plasterer started. Upstairs now has 3 bedrooms and a bathroom . The plasterer starts upstairs on Monday. Less that 4 weeks before we have to move: pressure on!

Glass in and plastering started!

Finally the glass arrived all be it 3 weeks late. We had some unwanted visiters 2 days before the glass was fitted as well; they stole nearly all my machines ….low life scum!

New doors and more pointing.

This week the pointing will be finished and it looks amazing if you ask me, very happy with the Rien and his brother the pointers :o) Next week the glass will be put in at last and also the big doors at the back will be fitted. A big day is coming for the wind mill , on the 22nd of october the top all 15 tons or so  (all above the bricks) will be lifted off and put next to the base so they can restore it and the lift it back on. You can follow it live on the web cam by going to  http://molenfakkerthoonhorst.nl and click on web cam.

Week 17 and 18: more roof and some rain!

Both roofs are nearly water tight now, just a small part on the back of the front roof to finish. We had to move all the planks closer together and replace about 30% or 40% of the wood due to wood worm or rotten wood . We also had a bit of rain this week so we had to work inside.  At some point in the past someone has gone a bit mad sawing through some A frame beams and the A frame by the chimney (see photo) . We’ve had to rebuild some of these.  

One chimney gone!

The beam here has been what shall I say .....remove partically !

New doors

That's Better .
