Repairing kitchen ceiling

Before I bought the cabin, rain water had been coming in around the chimney and had caused considerable damage to roof timbers and the ceiling

With Ingvar helping, we decided to repair the ceiling in the kitchen.  We had to remove the damaged material first

Rotten timbers had to be replaced with new ones

We covered the new timbers with hardboard to help stop cold drafts and a thick paper was put under the insulation, above the ceiling to also help reduce drafts.

We nailed up laths and then fixed tongue and groove boards to them and the new ceiling was completed

Here’s a picture as you walk in the door

The cabin will soon be available to hire.
