This blogs follows my journey to convert a 100 year old apple shed/barn in Tasmania into a four bedroom house.

Thought I would share another of my building hacks. When laying the self levelling cement in the bathroom, laundry and pantry I made myself a pin screed. It is a tool that you can set to the desired level and as you rake it over the cement it lays the cement at that thickness. I struggled to find one and they were really expensive... so I made my own with some scrap wood. It worked a treat and was adjustable too.
Reminds me of a hammer head shark. The top is.... 600mm from memory.
I used two button screws on each end. They are the adjustable pins and are were good skids. I just used a ruler and adjusted the screws to my desired height.
