The MillWalkers – Dismantling the Sweeps of a Beautiful Windmill

We recently were contracted to carry out high spec wood repairs to the sails, or ‘sweeps’, of this beautiful windmill and private home.

The spec was to include chopping out failed wood sections, replacing with external-grade plastic wood, painting with wood hardener to any softening wood, sanding down, lining with external-grade mastic and painted with a base coat to the limit of the allowable budget.

Day 1 on site, materials and tools in hand, and everything changed.
