What I call battens and Mike calls noggins (we don't talk about that argument) now in place ready for the metal sheets to be attached, although I think he's further strengthening them before the sheets go on. He's ordering special screws to use to secure the metal so is going to prepare and paint the sheets today - supposedly! At least it will be a chance to see if I've chosen the right colour..... You can just see the new trellis to the rear, painted black for aesthetic reasons to keep the neighbours happy. Although I do like black - wish I'd painted all my fences black to start with - a little late now with climbers growing all over them. Lesson learnt for next time!
