Larch cladding completed

In the foul weather at the end of January the final bits of the cladding were completed.

Window openings, the porch and overhang at the back of the house were all clad in larch and the finished appearance of the cladding is very good.  The only issue is a shortage of SPAX screws which meant that we had to skip alternate battens when fixing the boards on certain parts of the house.  I’ll go along and fill in the gaps when the screws arrive back in stock in Irish Wire in Limerick.

With the cladding complete I was able to fix all the parapet capping on the main roof during the week so the roof is now weather-tight.  A small bit of capping on the porch over the hall door remains to be finished but I’ll wait a few days until the stormy weather abates.
