The tré basement

Grace stuffed the piece of timber under a small rim that barely jutted out a half-inch from the roof of the cabinet. She gave the board a kick near the bottom with the heel of her boot and it stayed trapped in place.

"Now do the other side," Simon added.

Grace did so, with similar effect. "Think that's enough?"

"Should do," Simon opined. "I'm going to test it now." He slowly relaxed his grip on the crank. The boards bowed a little under the weight, but held the cabinet up.

"What do I do with these other boards?" asked Grace.

"Just lean 'em against the wall somewhere."

As she carelessly rested the timbers against the wall, she gave more instructions to Simon. "Close the flap on that crank and put the shelf back, in case someone comes down while we're investigating."

"Right, good idea," Simon agreed, as she opened the door.
