Rendering the chimney

Spring is by no means only for gardening, drinking coffee and sleeping all day. Its also a time for domicile beautification in the form of rendering. Spring is that ideal combination of sunny but not too hot and unemployed to make rendering possible. Unlike the rest of the house, the chimney bricks were in good shape with no cleaning or re-pointing required. The issue with the chimney is more of an access issue requiring the hiring of a scaffold to get myself up to its level. It was also a mad dash of seven days to go from an offensive middle finger of cream brick in the sky to a Mediterranean beacon with two coats of render and three of paint. It rained ceaselessly for at least three of those days.
