New Garage – Day 30

Work has started again on the new garage – finally. There had been quite a long break. At first the painters had to finish two other jobs, and then we had rain – which made it impossible to paint the outside – and then it was too cold. Well, even if the day started quite cold, it warmed up enough for the painters to start with the inside of the garage today. With the sun shining brightly and the inside walls in the shade one can’t see too much of the result of their work, but I”ll post a picture anyway.

Neue Garage – Tag 30

Heute ist, nach einer langen Pause, die Arbeit an der neuen Garage weiter gegangen – endlich. Zuerst mussten die Maler noch zwei andere Jobs fertigstellen, und dann kam das Wetter dazwischen. Erst regenete es, so dass die Garage draußen nicht gestrichen werden konnte, sondern erst einmal trocknen musste, und danach kam die Kälte. Nun, obwohl der Tag heute reichlich kalt anfing, war es nachher doch warm genug, dass die Maler anfangen konnten, die Garage innen zu streichen. Mit der strahlenden Sonne heute Nachmittag und in Anbetracht der Tatsache, dass die Innenwände dann im Schatten lagen, konnte man nicht viel vom Ergebnis des Anstreichens sehen, aber ich habe trotzdem mal ein Bild hier.
