    We are doing a VW/Skoda Garage about 1 1/2 miles from my house, (home every night for a change)
    Just before we started






    We started, (there's a long story, but I won't start or finish it)

    The Jumbo metal stud going in with 6 offices in behind in 70mm stud
    (Apex is 6 metres)





    more to follow

    The back spots you see in the photos are off my camera phone

    We have started boarding



    More studwork going up, all the Jumbo walls have a 30mm deflection head



    and the blockwork at the back, (no photo) has been dabbed shortly afterwards


    Jointing on the front wall done



    Door and window frames in, and painting started



    lots of stuff happening out of sequence, (long story,)

    Fire break boxing and stanchion boxing, seriously time consuming, and we had to get it right ready for the ceiling (note squared of ends to the knees either side of the boxing), and when jointing it took 2 rolls of flex, (bead for our brothers across the pond and down under) 66 metres or 72 yds to do that

    Yes at the moment, not had enough to go at in one hit to make it worth getting the machines out.

    And don't worry EK taper, no machine vs hand here, To me the crime is a machine taper that can't do things by hand, Ive seen that before, and that's a SIN in my books
