|The sink's in and sealed glazing units are being fitted one at a time.
||The sink arrived. Ordered online from Titanic Sinks (see sidebar link). Only took a couple of days. Fitting it meant making the cut out considerably longer - this sink has a really good sized bowl - and alterations to the waste. Took the opportunity to put a second sealing coat all the way around the cut edge.
The difference in quality between this Franke sink and the DIY shed's cheapie is huge. Not just the style, extra large bowl and rigidity, but also the quality of the stainless steel. It arrived totally flawless with an even finish. The other sink never looked this new!
I know were to go on future projects. We live and learn...
What else have I been up to? Well, windows mainly: making the decorative retaining bead; taking the sashes out and routing them to accept the greater depth of glass; treating them with preservative; fitting the glazing tape, unit and bead and then refitting the sash. Very time consuming, but it never ceases to amaze me how little rot there is. I mean, 70 years ago they put wooden windows in this house that are still with us today. Conversely, 20 years ago they put wooden windows in our rental flat that are rotting out already. And that's progress? So much for modern preservatives!
