Windmill Restoration July 2008

There was much excitement, as we finally got to lift the cap, to make sure it fitted. The deal was that, if it fitted, I had to buy steaks for all the boys, so as you can see from the picture of everyone on the cap it was an expensive lunch followed by Pavols’ Stag night.

As we couldn’t seem to go more than a few days without rain we had to take the cap back down and fit the temporary roof back on, hopefully for the last time.
Richard has been busy making the fiberglass segments for the top dome, I wonder if they will fit?

The kitchen arrives, so that keeps Neil and Phil busy for a couple of weeks.
