72. Materials start to arrive. new ceiling and wallboards.

73. First we have to repair the inner bulkhead

74. Then the outer bulkhead. Getting the bottom

shape takes time.

     

75. Starting on the lower kitchen wall

76. As there was nothing much left of it, it's a bit

of guess work.

77. The mould from the damp around the window

     

78. The upper kitchen cupboard is removed to aid

fitting of the new wallboard. Evidence of a kitchen

fire can be seen on the ceiling.

79. A template is made for the window and new

framing cut.

80. The lower kitchen wall with air vents, gas exhaust

and 240v inlet

   
     

81. End of another day. Kitchen wall and door

frame is complete.

82. The finished lower kitchen wall framework

83. Above the window. This will be filled with insulation

     

 

   

84. From another angle 85. Ditto.

86. Work begins on the back end.

     
     

87. The inner upper cupboard is removed to reveal

yet more smoke damage. Not to worry, the roof

and ceiling are being replaced anyhow.

88. The back wheel arch exposed. I'm sure there

must be more than just wood covering it!

89. The new framing takes shape..

     

90. Ditto.

91. Hopefully to help understand how far the ceiling

had collapsed. Admittedly, the roof barers have

been cut this side, but that still doesn't account for

the huge drop.

92. The original and rotten wall is removed.

     

93. The new frame offered up.

94. A new wheel arch is created using the pattern

from the old GRP side.

95. The bottom end of the rear wall.
