Today is dairy door day, but first we had to make the door frames.

These were made from 50x 100mm tanalised timber which were bolted into the granite blocks behind with expanding bolts. These were a pain and I now regret not using ‘Thunderbolts’ as these just thread their way into the block just like a woodscrew.

To prevent water getting into the dairy, I used a row of brick blocks to form a low dam. This is needed as the dairy floor by the doorway will be lower than the concrete pathway which will be poured later.

The door itself was basically a sheet of 20mm thick OSB with fake built up boarding made using a circular saw to represent the joins. A fake framework was glued and screwed on both sides to give strength and rigidity

Just need to prime and add a lick of paint and were done.
