    Wise. Natural cooling methods such as this are well worth the thought to put them in place.

    Could you give some numbers and calculations to reinforce that advice?

    Good, and though it will reduce the breeze a bit, some mozzie netting screens wouldn't go astray.

    Thanks for the concern, NPT... I am alive n well.

    Transformer now fully fitted, meter fitted, temporary 15/45 supply disconnected and the power now coming through the new installation.

    Pedestrian Gates

    We got the same company that made the main gate to also make the pedestrian gates, for continuity.

    Once fitted and stripped of their plastic cover, the colour is pretty close to that of the wood on the house.


    delivery was on time


    QAQC were straight on the case.
    2 doors? check.
    delivery here? check.
    Customer waiting to watch installation? check.
    Get on with it? yes!


    Although they measured it before they made the gate frame (least ways...I hope they did!).. a final check was made


    These were those gates waiting in the factory...


    Didn't take long to place them...


    A bit longer to align them


    Not sure we will stay with these handles long term - I want an auto opening release so that i don't have to traipse down to the gate every time someone comes round


    it does not look too bad, I think...





    here's the back door also in place


    Yep - they do actually open 'n' close - a key feature requirement!


    its a solid stainless steel frame but i will probably do some more work on the back - looks a bit 'industrial ' for me

    I might just paint the steel the same wood colour, or i might face it with something...not sure yet


    Ooops - nearly forgot this one - the door with all the plastic travelling protection removed

    TerraCotta tile sealing

    Love terra cotta but as we all know... its porous.

    That means it will stain easily when the red wine gets split.

    So...its got to be sealed, and K.Pot finally got round to doing it...
















    PJ's bro checking if its still sticky...

    You may or may not be pleased to know that the mechanism is not in the handle or latch but in the box or catch.

    TD will still have to replace the lock and key with a remote device.

    The release mechanism is in the catch, in the door jam.

    That is on a whole different plot, in a whole different timescale and will involve a whole different thread

    I need a rest after my version of War and Peace... only one epic adventure at a time, please!!

    Slip factor has increased David, but not really by so much.

    this was more about getting a seal to stop staining.

    the sealant sinks in to the terra cotta surface rather than lacquering a glass-like top to the tiles - the tile still grips the foot enough.

    Will have to repeat after time of course but rather that than trying (and failing) to remove wine or grease stains from the many parties we will be having!

    I suggest saving the tennis balls from your gated tennis club TD. Cut em in 1/2 and stick to the bottom of a set of flip flops - for the rare occasion when your able to see over the yard arm.

    Just watching on French TV5;

    THE LOUVRE ABU DHABI
    The first universal museum in the Arab world, the Louvre Abu Dhabi is home to a museum city of more than 64,000 square meters. Its construction represented an extraordinary architectural challenge, between tradition and modernity. Behind the scenes of a construction site that will last ten years, from the first idea to its completion.

    Directed by: Patrick Ladoucette (France, 2017)
    Le Louvre Abu Dhabi

    Very impressive, TD perhaps something you are nearby?
