- Repair / alter doors
A wooden shed's door has a frame which is partially rotten away at the bottom. So the door doesn't hinge properly anymore, though still can be shut with a push. It looks like the door frame needs to be re-done and the door re-hanged.

A wooden shed has developed a leak in one corner of the ceiling. The roof is covered in synthetic slate tiles. So it needs to be fixed. Easy access to the roof and to the shed.
