It’s a bit undulating, but had to follow the purlins, which are concrete and had sagged,
Which meant keeping a straight line was difficult,
Customer was happy,
Good job I would say .👍
I bet it rains tonight. Just 4-5mm.
Just come back from fetching a cow and calf 20 miles away it was raining steady there....get back home ..dry as a bone 😬😬😬
