Time for some pruning

In between all the work in the house the days are getting longer and the weather is getting nicer. Triggered by a friends post on Facebook, I contacted Carool to teach me online how to prune the old neglected apple trees in the garden.
We started with on to get the basics down. I took pictures, send them to him and he marked which branches to take out.
As I have a electrical chain saw I thought it would be handy to also have a power plug on the outside of the house, so I adjusted the light I installed in the fall.
While waiting on feed back for the first tree, Mo and I decided to take out the two trees just on front of the garage. The had hardly any apples, stand to close to the building and don’t add to much to the garden. Once they where cut, it looked so much better already.
And of course the nice thing about pruning is, you have something to burn as well. This early in the year it is not so much a problem.

A bit more painting

This week we have mainly been sanding and painting. Besides we took measurements for some sliding doors to cover the space under the roof. It becomes a pretty nice unity.

Making it a toilet

After the canalization, there was also a need for water. This was already prepared, so it was relatively easy to connect to.
After that the left over floor tiles just fit in the toilet space and we found a nice sink with a little cabinet and a mirror. Once that was all in I started to sand down the big beams on the ceiling so we can stain them with the white wash.
