We can do this

So after much thought and weighing it all up Kevin said 'This is doable,  after working together on a big project such as the Boxoftrix Studio....we can do this, we can fix her up, turn it around'....


he removed every rotten piece of wood possible ...........


then the window had to come out (which had moss growing inside the corners) and the rubber surround. I set about giving a good clean and used some scratch and haze remover on the plastic and a lot of  'Astonish' abrasive cleaner on the metal frame.


rebuilding a new wooden frame on the inside


using wood and metal brackets, its now stronger than ever......


he coated the surrounding remaining wood with fence timber care.


the new wood is already treated.


front panel cleaned and painted and a nice clean window back on what a difference it made!

and inside..........


This was such an exciting moment to see these boards going on, double thickness for strength.


all finished with sealant.

the side window rubber surrounds were also removed to make it easier for the next job
A great job don't you think?
Now we know whats behind there and feel much better that we will be able to sleep safely in her.
3+ weeks and we have achieved so much already
There is still much to do! every day a little more painting and sewing...
... more pictures tomorrow.
