doors repaired

I assisted at the mini workparty at the Carr Astronomical Observatory (CAO) this weekend.

The south wall door flaps of the GBO had been tearing out the piano hinge screws. It turned out that the wood sill underneath was rotted from water damage. Further exploration showed that the south wall repair from last summer had been ineffective: the lower part of the wall was also badly rotted.

A small team demantled and rebuilt the south wall and doors. It was intense hard work in less than ideal conditions (again) but the finished result is very good. We don't expect water to find its way into the wall.
