Work work

 Dave got 2 of the corner posts concreted in on Sat. This one and another. We also fixed the upper garden fence.

 Last night when DH got home from work and had something to eat we started to tackle the permanent ladder/stairs that are bolted to the living room floor.

Not an easy job with just me as help lol. We found we had to get me up into the loft once the old ladder was gone so I could help lift the new trap door/folding ladder into the loft to place it in the hole.  Of course nothing in this old 1030 house is square or even so that didn't help matters. Then when that was said and done get me back out and down unto the step ladder.

Tonight we will do more work on it but he had to cut away part of the wall so the trap door part would open and now we will have to plaster that if 1/4 inch sheet rock wont fit to at least fill in the corner.
