Back Cabin Day 2.
Yesterday you may have read, I prepared the back cabin by rubbing it all down and undercoated the walls, ceiling and shelves in white undercoat. Today was top coat day, but not beofre the first cuppa of the day, whilst watching breakfast news on the BBC. Overnight we had some very heavy rainfall, which the garden would of loved and the of course the canals. I am not sure at what time we both got woken up, but there was a crack and a bang. It turned out to be the smoke box on our stove.
Anyway after all the overnight rain, when we woke up properly the sun was out and it boded well for a lovely day to do some painting.
Once we were up and dressed. I opened the boat up, made breakfast and then cleared up with mess left behind by the broken smoke box. Having been in touch with a few people about a new smoke box, we can relax, because we have hopefully found a replacement. Unfortunately Midland Chandlers do not do them anymore and that is where we got the stove from 12 years ago.
Tomorrow will see this end of the back cabin finished.
Pop back soon xx
