    Carport ceiling

    can anyone recommend a builder to put a giprock ceiling up in my carport.

    It's about 8m X 6m so not a big job.

    Make sure whoever does the job uses either water resistant W/R board or cement sheet,preferably the latter.

    Will lessen the chance of mould.

    Surely the guys who built your pool and pool house will have a Cambodian willing to earn a couple of red notes for an afternoons work? After that, he can put your car port up as well....

    I would rather give the job to a bind paraplegic than other the pool house makers another chance at giving me a nervous breakdown.

    They are not the pool installers, btw

    Drive around the lake to where the gypo encampment is on the right hand side - ask them if they will sling it up for you. Play your cards right and they will rip the materials from what ever project they are about to build.

    Happy days.

    I haven't noticed any bird shit, but it washes off. Geckos are the major shit depositors in my neighborhood Looper. We also have two hungry neighbor cats that troll the area.

    The carport is up and was finished once until the roof leaked.

    I've now had the underneath of the tiles sealed with spray on insulating foam. To do this the old ceiling had to be removed.

    Like I said not a ig job, just the boards and frame to replace.
    I would post pictures but life's too short.

    I'm presently building my own roof covering an extension on my laundry which I also built myself.

    Never attempted roofing frame-work before but had a builder mate look at it and his comment was TOO GOOD = VERY STRONG.

    Even been welding for the first time in over 35 years and although the welds are not aesthetically perfect they will work.

    Have a go yourself ya mug!

    Yes and my friend is coming today from UK with some "welding magnifiers" 2.25 magnification windows that fit inside the mask.

    I am sure you have discovered it is like riding a bike...

    In reality I think I would resort to old gas welding as I was better at that. Could weld thermometer capillary tubing without blocking the 7 thou hole. Actually it's more of a technique than a skill but....

    That being said once I used to be able to weld with a stick and have the flux curl up like a caterpillar as I progressed.

    TIG needs the magnifiers

    Kurgen needs to buy some material and have a party?
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all
