The far corner of the work area will receive a decorative ironwork construction and I needed to keep a record of the placement of wood in the wall for placing anchor screws later on. So, rather out of character I have a series of photos that show the work progress. Starting with the wooden skeleton above.
Then we move on to a covering of asphalt roofing paper and a layer of wire lath mesh stapled over the top.
Today the first layer of mortar went on, this will be followed by another coat of a different type and finally the White stuff to finish off.
