It was -4 overnight, but the forecast is that today will be dry and sunny - perfect weather for building a wall across the back of the garage.
So we have a hole that needs to be filled. We have 50 breeze blocks, carefully calculated to fill the hole (provided we don't make any mistakes)
We have a trailer with a quarter of a tonne of sand, 125kg of cement, a wheelbarrow and two spades.
We have a space on the floor where we can tip our sand
And another space where we can mix our cement/sand mix in the ratio 1:4.
The first row is always the most critical and must be dead straight in all dimensions - up/down and side to side.
The gaps are filled in, and row two commences with a piece cut into two, so the joints don't line up between rows.
This means that the occasional piece has to be cut - the joy of a large angle grinder.
By mid-afternoon, we have several rows in place, and are getting low of mix. A maximum of five rows should be done on any one day.
So the next day is similar weather. And rows 6 to 10 go in, with more cutting. We have 3/4 of a piece left over when we have finished.
Was there ever a nicer wall built (in part) by me? Most definitely not!
