I have not been too busy balloon modelling this week as we had to get on with
some repairs to the balloon warehouse. New fascia boards were required plus the
porch/veranda wall section had rotted so we took this down and will not replace.
Now I have to get new decking as the old needs rubbing down/painting and
re-screwing so I think new would all look a lot nicer.

Taking the old down and painting the new.

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

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.

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 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.

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
