What I've done in these pics is cover all the pencil marks I made to indicate where internal wooden batons were. I had doubts the paint would cover them up so I thought an initial coat would help the successive coats hide any markings.
Obviously you can still see those initial coats now the first roller coat went on. I was quickly reminded that the very best way to use a roller is on a pole, it's so much quicker and easier. I've also noticed recently that the joints in my fingers and hands have become really sore and using a roller would have been a nightmare without using a pole.
First coat is done although I'm a little concerned there isn't enough to do a full second coat.
It was about an hour and a half all in to get to this stage.
And the door doesn't look too bad either.
Now I contemplated painting the central beam but it just seemed unnecessary but if I reconsider I may stain it the same colour as the teak, add some continuity to the interior.
And the view from the otuside. Just the second coat and I can get the electrics sorted.
