Description: Red flowers. Yellow flowers. Pink flowers. A man measures up a brick wall with a spirit level. He pulls up a thin wire. He climbs a short ladder and looks closely at the brickwork. Back on the ground, the man uses a hammer and chisel to cut a brick down to size. The outside brick structure of the shed can be seen, with the flowers from earlier swaying in the breeze next to it. A corner of the unfinished brickwork is shown. The image spins around before fading to black.
