Hole in the Wall....

I awoke to sawing this morning.  At 4:00AM...

I am not the only one that likes to get an early start in the morning.

I turned on the light and there was a keyhole saw in the side of the weaver's workshop, with Zar attached to the handle.  He was sawing furiously and only stopped when I wrestled the saw away from him.

He tried to get it back, but I am bigger than he is.  He didn't succeed.

When I asked what he thought he was doing, he answered, "Making a hole!".  I guess I asked for that one.

OK....Try again....One word.  "Why?"

"I need more light in the shop."  Then he quickly added, anticipating my next question, "It is going to be a window."

Logical.

Then he went inside to get more tools and some sandpaper.

For those of you that have never added a window where there wasn't one...

I drew straight lines exactly where he wanted the window to be.  OK.  I confess, I helped.  He can't handle a twelve inch ruler and a pencil at the same time.  He was just sawing from that hole that he made in the center of the wall.  I knew that, if we wanted it to be a window, I had to help a little.

I drew the lines, drilled holes in the corners, where the saw would start and got the keyhole  saw lined up.

He did the rest.  You should see him run forward and then pull back with all of his weight on the handle....Interesting way to saw.

While he was inside, I peeked in and noticed that he still had the CCTV on and a photo of Tessie from yesterday...I think that this is to remind Tessie that she is being closely watched when she is in his part of the workshop.

Being the cagey person that she is, she has been standing outside the hole since he put it there.  She knows that the CCTV doesn't take photos of the windows, unless someone resets the camera angle.

Anyway, that's as far as we have gotten today.  His hole in the wall makes more work for me.  More leaded windows and more framing and painting.

The fun never ends...

See you tomorrow.

I can see the gang's been really busy. And, I can see that Spike is forever being the watchdog! Good boy, Spike!

Hello Casey,
It might be more work, but the window is a great idea and looks very good there.
Big hug,

Great idea. A window will look great there. Worth the extra work.
