The roof vent / The red sun

I was at my garage around 6:15 this morning because I was having a roof vent installed. This will hopefully improve the humidity inside. The guy who was doing the work helped me push the Mustang outside and carry a few things out of the way, very kind of him. Then he drove in his lift and started.

This is the vent pipe that's gonna be installed.

It fits a 150-160mm pipe if I ever hook that up. First we'll see how it does without a fan.

While the guy was working on the roof I painted the inside of my my cupboard with anti-mold paint.

There's the hole that was cut from the inside. Next up was cutting from the outside and mounting the pipe.

By the time everything on the roof was done I had also finished painting. Looks nice. Let's hope the mold will stay away, too.

Back at work I learned about a natural phenomena that was happening outside. I thought it was cloudy but it was not, it was dusty! The tropical storm that hit Ireland brought along lots of red dust from Africa which was spread even across The Netherlands!

It coloured the sun a bit red which was something you don't see very often here!

The fire

Late afternoon there was a big fire close to my work for a short while.

It made a lot of smoke.

The little locomotive

I spotted this old locomotive 2 days ago. I've always wanted to create models of it semi-professionally and sell them but since they're not in use anymore they are hard to find to get measurements of. And of course I never had my own workspace to produce anything at all.

But I do have my own workspace now and maybe this is a sign that I should get started ;-)

And then I painted a bit more. Also I found more mold on certain pieces of wood / shelves. I'm so not pleased about the mold and I can't wait for my roof-vent to be installed...

In the afternoon Simone and I went looking at furniture. On the way back we passed my office.

When we got home, Silver was bossing or playin with some other cats. He was happy to come to me though and let me carry him home...

Checking out a hood

This morning I went to check out a standard Mustang hood that was for sale for 150 euros. I was hoping it would be good but unfortunately it was not :-(

Rust all around the edges where the inner and outer metal is welded together. I wouldn't know how to fix that...

And inside there was rust as well. No way you can spray stuff like rustoleum in every corner so it's really a lost cause, sadly...

So I went back to my garage without the hood but also not having spend money on something worthless.

I hung up my Guinness mirror.

I also replaced more molded shelves with new ones (that will probably also get moldy as long as the humidity doesn't go down...)

I started marking spots where the metal poles for my first floor have to be. At least that felt like progress...

First spot!

I got to work so early that I got the first spot on the first deck! The best thing is that this means traffic on the way to work must've been really good :-)

In the evening I had drinks and bites with other people who bought or rent a garage where I do. It was quite nice to meet some other folks. When I left I saw this old water tower.

The pictureless Thursday

The crow

Simone and I went walking again tonight, quite windy but who cares, it was dry. This crow was trying hard to hold on. Soon after i took the photo he had to let go...
