Dunedin, New Zealand, my city - my people

A night time working bee.

Son-in-law David checking the state of the weatherboard in his over 100yr old house.
Staggered dwangs (noggins in the North Island and Australia)
My drop saw comes into its own with such work.
Tonight we took all the timber sarking off another wall at my daughter's place. We took all the nails out of the wall and got one row of dwangs (noggins) in. The old wood is really really hard to nail through. It was a good night's work. The cars were frosted up before we headed home. I am enjoying using my drop saw. Tools well used are an investment. I will really love the change this work will make to this planned guest room - when it is completed.
