Some more progress at last!

Its been some time since we had anything significant to add to this blog, but this last couple of months we've made a wee bit more progress inside and out.

Above, a new fence and gate added in September ahead of getting this little chap.

In October Steve knocked down one of the five sheds we inherited when we bought the cottages. The 'wet shed' (named cos its roof was like a sieve) stood just left of this shed and in front of the table and chairs. Can't wait to get the others pulled down!

And this last week, Steve's brother Jon came down for the week and has done out the boot room. Oak flooring (recycled from the one we took out of the house) and hand-made units (made from left over kitchen casing (the dark walnut bits) and bought English oak (bench top and shoe-shelving top). Above, the bench with under-storage for boots, below, a cupboard unit hiding the electricity gubbings made from MDF and incorporating room for brooms, brollies and a couple of shelves to tidy things away! We might just keep ti this colour!

Above, shelves for shoes and a corner unit to with wee compartments in to which we can stuff out hats, gloves and scarves. Just got to hide those pipes now.

Jon's done a brilliant job and we're thrilled to have something handmade by him as part of our house! Click here to see how it used to look.
