Started the staircase stringers at last. I managed to get some really nice kiln dried oak from Granville Bois in Villedieu des Poeles. Cutting it was a bit of a swine and planing it was even more fun. Had to get our neighbour Alison to lend a hand but we got the job done and I now have two nice clean blanks to lay out for the treads. The large piece of wood on the left is.... Ahem....spare.
And again with Libby to give some scale
On a completely different note, I found this in the skip at the tip....I thought it worth saving. I'm sure I can make it into something nice, maybe a mirror?
I'm a computer programmer by trade and my Blogg charts the trials and tribulations of my ambitious renovation project in Normandy France. What started as a family project I continue as a single parent dad with time split between working in the UK and then looking after my two daughters and finishing the renovations I started in France...with care and with love.
