Corrugated trim on and side pieces, got to run a cable in from the water house just for a light then concrete the floor before getting the chap on (render)
Also got to infill where that single block is that holds up the middle beam as it looks a bit odd

Maids house now complete gutter downspouts fitted and final coats of paint on.............all we need now is a maid!!
I wish Windsor would make better fittings for their products, I have to screw with stainless screws the brackets onto the pipe to get them to stay on, they often ping off.
Anti jing jok and mosquito screens also fitted all round
Advert for maid.....
