I went round to the house today with the intent to move all of the left over bricks to the back so that I can save them for building a letter box or something. Unfortunately the brickie hadn't quite finished and I would have had to move lots of his things around to get the bricks around and felt that this may have been a bit of an imposition. He has done the sills on some of the windows.
On the weekend the boys in their usual rummage through the leftovers found some pieces of the firestreak floor boards. So I took these pieces, nailed them together, sanded them and then put some linseed oil on them to see what they would look like when the floorboards get stained.
