Yesterday was another reasonably cool day and I made great progress. Today has been warmer so worked from 6am to midday only and then took a break. Only 2 supporting pillars left to construct and two of the main beams in place. Drainage channel round the circumference partly complete.
So I was feeling pretty damn pleased with myself until I bumped into Rick at the river beach.
“What’s to stop the whole structure racking?” he asked.
I didn’t even know what that was. Evidently with nothing attaching the main beams to the pillars, there’s a possibility the whole structure could twist sideways. I have now been instructed in the use of noggins, and if for no other reason than that I love the name, I shall be installing said noggins.
Just how I haven’t quite got my noggin around yet, but you’ll hear about it here sooner or later.
