Clamping and Glueing
Now the first stage of standing is finished, it is now time to do a bit of glueing and clamping.
The main parts needing repair is where the small roof was removed above the garage.
One piece was splitting around the front, the wood was very dry, probably due to its age.
All glued and clamped, just have to wait for the glue to dry.
There was a split in the wood just behind the door, so I have stuck and clamped it. Hopefully it will flatten out.
Once I had removed the paint, and sanded, the front side panel had a gap. I cleaned out the space between the two panels, and glued and clamped them together.
I have used Ronseal Multi Purpose Wood Filler, to repair any damaged wooden areas which need filling. It is good for repairing small areas, and is easy to apply.
The front panel on this house had been fixed on the opposite side, this could be because the original panel was damaged down one side. I can mount the new hinges in a difference part of the panel.
I have filled the damaged area with wood filler, this will be sanded flat when it is dry.
Filling repair has also been needed to the top of this panel, this was where the old hinges had been fitted.
The small roof panel needed repairing.
