Where to start – had a very busy productive couple of days the sycamore tree growing too close to the building no doubt a daughter of the big sycamore tree has been expertly taken down, letting in the sunshine, the stump will make a great bench support great job Mark and his team – back on Friday to sort out the dead trees further up the garden.
Ged, Jamie and I were looking and measuring where the outside fire escape stairs are going to go and were looking at the grass underfoot and discovered that there was some hard-standing just under the grass on digging the soil away from the surface not concrete but some lovely stones sloping away from the building – we also discovered what can only be described as a standing stone/stone post lying down next to the old black oil tank – just lovely.
Have had a quote from Billy and agreed roof work to fix up the front building the guttering around it and fix the leak in the flat roof over the toilet – also to remove the rusty old oil tank and stand the stone up – marvelous. I think the breeze block supports for the tank will make a good barbecue next to the patio area!
Work starts on Friday to take down the ceiling and strip out the office/reception area, Tuesday Scott and I took out a fold-down table under the window in the downstairs workshop and some shelves in front of the inside of the window.
Organised a site visit for Matt to look at the electrics and Reg to examine the plumbing, have had thoughts/plans about the kitchen partition wall and opened the soon to be kitchen door. I am going to ask Jamie the carpenter to look at the front door. Will be shopping for the battens, insulation and new ceiling panels – busy as bees over the next five days. Photos refreshed take a look at the changes.
