One little grey rabbit thinks when he grows up he might want to be a building inspector. I'm a little worried he blends in too well withe thermolite blocks!
He thinks we have used very strange building materials the only thing you can have a good chew on is the insulation.
We will knock through the kitchen window into the new space.
At the moment you can only get there through the french doors in the sitting room.
Or the new utility room that has a roof!
The grass in the front garden has had a little bit of a hard time with all the building materials stacked up, Only two bags of sand left which is wonderful, I have stacked the last few bricks on the path to give the grass a chance.
Now into the back garden....
The Bricks are waiting for the builder to come back and finish off, hopefully this week. The builder has done the foundations and the bricks we are doing the rest and the nights are drawing in so there is not so much DIY time.
The bigger window in the middle is the kitchen one, the one we will knock through and have french doors opening into the new space.Our nice new drive way we finish a few months ago is now covered in all the mud, waiting to be collected. Our builder did try and off load some more bricks from his house onto the pile. I think he was most amused when I said no wait I need those.........
I have just enough to finish the edging on the raised beds. All of which have been doing well over the summer, keeping us in runner beans, carrots, lettuce, courgette's beetroot potatoes and fennel. Sadly the tomatoes got the blight, will have them on the patio next year as the building work should be finished.
I have leeks, cabbages, sprouting broccoli in for the winter, I must order some broad bean seeds as I will be planting them out in November again.
I think we are nearly back in action with the internet even if its painfully slow. Its been very difficult looking for building materials when it kept going down.
Next post, a painting.........
