Week 77..we have a floor!!
Another week and the first of the flooring has been laid, in the soon to be tiki bar! We decided to measure from the centre of the house, as the same floor will run through the whole of the ground floor. And as luck would have it, our house is so symmetrical, the herringbone patternContinue reading “Week 77..we have a floor!!”

First fix done plus twinkly lights…”
Something that we felt was a must when it came to the planning stages of the build, and the lighting design. And we have decided to go with up/down lights. The splay of light with these works so well in different spaces, and we will have them either side of the front door, as wellContinue reading “Outdoor lights…”
Picket fences and brick walls…
So…we have been giving a little more thought to the landscaping, its still way off yet but I can dream ha! Once the drainage has been sorted, we can at least level out the front and side of the house but we probably won’t get really stuck in until the cottage we are living inContinue reading “Picket fences and brick walls…”
Double height decisions…
