Today is the big day that the Summerhouse was delivered.
After 18 months of planning; cutting a shed; moving a shed; mixing countless bags of sand and cement to concrete a sub base; then buying another shed; the replacing and repairing the boundarys; and finally laying slabs to level the foundation, we finally got there.
Recapping in pictures what has been going on:-
|The second shed in situ between the trees.|
|Laying the slabs|
|Looking like a dance floor|
|Thinning the Birches|
|Finally ready to build.|
I still have a few plans: I have several boxes of white tiles from the previous owner in the shed that could be smashed up to make a Barcelona-like broken tile mosaic trim for the front of the base. The Summerhouse has partial glass sides so I'd like to reposition that large trellis panel and plant and train a honeysuckle so that there is something nice to look out on instead of the fence panels.
In the next few days the Summerhouse will go up. Watch this space!
