Problems with rot!

It’s been a while since we last posted, that’s because there’s been a lot going on, particularly in the way of frame repairs. We always knew the sole plate was going to be an issue, and so it has proved to be. There was considerable hidden rot within the sole plate, much of which has been caused by water ingress leading to wet-rot and beetle infestations. Where possible and where more than 75% of the sectional area of frame remains intact, we’ve been saving the wood. Where rot is extensive, we’ve carefully supported the frame and scarfed in matching timber.
