Tordino – Shopping

16th May 2018 – Just went shopping to Ikea. It is the quickest way to get light fittings, bulbs and cheap furniture to put behind the desks. If I have to make these storage units by myself, it would cost me at least triple the price in materials….

Tordino – Kitchen and hatches

15th May 2018 – The kitchen and bedroom on the old accommodation are nearly finished. I want it to look as traditional as possible with the right decoration and furniture. It took me some time, but it starts to look good!

Later that evening, I rebuilt the fake den for the old hatches. It was moved several times and got damaged.


Tordino – Insulation

11th May 2018 – There could be no warmer day to work outside then it was today. We opened the hatches and insulated the ceiling. Looks simple, but it took a lot of time and I was well burnt by the sun.

Tordino – Painting

10th May 2018 – Just painting the hold today. A few more days and it should be finished.

Some tools and spare parts were moved to the front of the boat. At least, people now have an impression ow how it will look in a few weeks time!

Tordino – Small bits and pieces

1st May 2018 – I started with filling a few small joints in the wood. Later that day, we finished the electricity and the ceiling. In the evening, I built two more tables for showing objects in the hold. I closed the day by hovering and cleaning up.

Tordino – Painting and t&g

24th April 2018 – While my parents painted the big wall in the hold, I continued with t&g. Since I didn’t had any time to go to the shop, I ran out of t&g…


It had to be red for the surveyor

Later that evening, I built my first frame for the show boxes.

Tordino – Corridor

23rd April 2018 – Started working in the corridor to the hold. This is one of the remaining places where I have a lot of wood work to do.

One of the remaining issues of the survey was to insulate the chimney of the heater.

Tordino – Finishing the big wall

21st April 2018 – A perfect day for working. 26°C outside, at least 40°C inside. My father was sanding down the blue paint outside while I finished the big wall of the museum entrance. My mother vanished the old accommodation in the hold and started painting in the afternoon.
