wood preservation

Before I share with you the story of our new stairs. I’ll show you what the girls did last weekend….

Because our constructor called and asked if we wanted to preserve the wood with a varnish before they begin with the construction of the sun deck. Well, what a good idea – so we screwed our plans for the weekends, I called Anja, miss ladybird and my mum and asked for help and all three of them didn’t hesitated for a single moment!
We met at one of the halls from our constructor where our timber was stored. I didn’t recognize it by then but that is a serious amount of wood! (the balcony is going to be huge! I can tell y’all!)
First we brushed off the sawdust and then we started to varnish the timber. We had two teams. Team paintbrush (Anja and my mum) and Team paint roller (miss ladybird and I). We painted every beam 2 times on 3 sides and turned them over (aka roll them) so we could paint the last side as well.
The result is a slightly “honey-toned” finish which will (hopefully) last for a few years. comes rain. comes shine.
It took us the whole day to get everything done and add 2 layers of preservation on every piece of timber. Thank you so much Anja, miss ladybird and Mum for helping us!
