All cut and in position, ready to be screwed into place and level.

There was a good selection of rusted in screws taken out the old decking

They were certainly rotten.

The new joists and spacers.

Did a little more to the decking yesterday.

The temporary walkway to pick the orders.
Digging out the second rotten joist.

There was a joint already 4 feet back so it seemed silly to cut 18 inches
off and have another joint. The only problem was the screws holding the two
together had rusted in so we had to drill and chisel out the joint. It did take a while.
Off to do the second one this morning

The rain did come down yesterday but I was able to get outside for
a short while early morning and late afternoon.

A couple of the main beams had completely rotted so it's off this morning
to get replacements to fit. The new decking arrived.

All the old decking got taken up.

I turned the double bubble around under nose, perhaps the eyes
need to be moved lower on the face...……………………
Only one way to find out.

Just trying to get a more line work Yoda design with only using
one balloon for the head design.

in the first picture I attached the cloak/body section to the side of the head.
It did not work.

The last picture is not right for shape of head but I'm going to go
with plan B on that shape/construction later today.

It's been a challenge trying to take out all the rusty screws.
Got some out but had to revert to brute force and ripping up the old decking

The front fascia is now up, next task taking up the old decking.
Going to paint fascia again today and take decking up if we get time.

Fitting the top section of fascia and all the rotten timber for the local tip.
Only had a couple of hours yesterday.

Kept slightly changing the design.
The ears I did slightly cheat a little for the picture.
Then had a go at the other design.

As the ears attached to the lobes from the heart they looked way too high so I
went for plan B and moved down by adding a little side hair as in the last picture.
Plus added the yellow at top of arms.

I had a play with the shimmer dolls yesterday.
I went to see Sherlock Gnomes yesterday morning so making the
hair from a heart sprang to mind when looking at the gnomes.
