As you can see we are combining it with commemorations of the end of the First World War.
Will take your advice re inspections. We hoist and lower the flag regularly so we will keep a close watch on the pole.
There are a few narrow cracks like pencil marks but we are not concerned. As I think you said, Douglas fir cracks anyway and the saw mill told us the same. As long as we have breathable wood paint any moisture which gets in will be able to escape and so will not cause rot.
All the best Richard
Note from the editor: a most challenging project. The new flagpole of St Christopher’s Church Haslemere was treated with Moose F Norrland Vit breathable wood paint. The choice was made as the old flagpole rotted away due to time but also due to residual moisture under the old paint. Moose Färg is much honoured to be chose for this difficult project to see if the pole lasts longer. Time will tell.
Hi there, I promised you I would send you a picture of the completed cabin. We used Moose Farg black wood paint Moose F Vasa Svart on the exterior. We are now open for business. Check out our website www.acornwood.ie.
Dear Mr Smit, The paint cans arrived properly a couple of days after you shipped them. I think it was on monday sept 15th. Fast shipment and safe packing. At first, I must admit that I was surprised and even a little disappointed by the color that I discovered at the opening. But, when the two layers have been spread and dried, the aspect changed totally. The brownish grey I had seen turned to the beautiful blue grey paint that I expected. The render is wonderful. I wish I had not already painted the shutters ! Oops, I forgot to thank you very much for the pepparkakor box. I am really satisfied of your supplies and won’t forget to make advertise all around me. Best wishes. Vincent Desplanche Rabastens France
Sie hatten mich darum gebeten, Ihnen ein Foto von dem Schrank zu schicken, wenn ich ihn mit der Farbe angestrichen habe. Die Farbe ist toll, sehr gut zu verarbeiten und der Farbton ist auch sehr schön!
