The power of tools.

When we first moved in here we didn't own many power tools so were doing most of our building the old fashioned way with hand tools. (not to mention that I was a bit scared of using power tools)

So as we have been able to afford to buy tools I've been learning to use them.

It is just sooooooooo much quicker cutting something, drilling, stripping back second-hand wood to a useable form. And I found suprisingly fun!

So last week I was up on the roof helping dp install insulation and re-place the rusty old tin with shiney new tin. When I was growing up I never would've imagined I'd be doing this!
And the roof looks great too and hopefully it won't leak anymore!
