Monday 9th & Tuesday 10th February
Do you wanna go on a bender? Amanda & Polly make it warm & cosy…
Step 1: Remove temporary camouflage curtain over willow frame
Step 2: Wrap waterproof plastic around willow and hold with clamps
Step 3: Leaving a gap for the ‘door’….
…and a ‘chimney’ at the top – for wood smoke to escape
Step 4: Insulate the interior with blankets fixed behind willow structure (7 were needed)
Step 5: Cut lengths of string and use a lighter to seal the ends
Step 6: Wrap small pieces of masking tape around the ends to stop fraying, allowing for easy threading
Step 7: Using needle with large eye and thread, secure the plastic to the willow…
…preventing take off…
…and tie and sew the ‘thermals’ inside
Step 8: Nail plastic down to floor palettes to keep the bottom watertight and put camo fabric back on!
Great work from construction team – Polly and Amanda!
A den for all weathers – is now ready for occupation…
Final Step: Carpets and luxury rug found in skip, complete the interior comforts…
