Jonathan: That’s what’s half filling the wheelie bin at 8 Askernish just now. Empty paint pots a-plenty, and two old boiler suits covered in spots and smears of white and grey (and more beside from years of the dirtiest jobs). The back of the car is full of paint brushes, rags, dust sheets, tools and all the detritus of hard work. There’s still a bit of tidying up to do: paint spots to scrape from the windows with a razor blade, flakes of old paint to collect up, and come to think of it the paths need weeding. But stand back and … the house looks absolutely fantastic! And here’s a nice photo to prove it!
