Wood and bolts. Hard-core chippy.

Sun basking

Ewok sun basking

Never one not to find the best spot in the garden. This morning Ewok excelled himself, combining a sunny spot with strategic placement between car and front door. The perfect spot to make sure he wasn't forgotten in the half-term escape to New Milton. Can't blame him after this damp, damp, damp winter. (For finding the sun that is, I'm sure New Milton is just as damp.)

A boy in the bathroom

Looking down from the bathroom

Little H. Looking down from the bathroom, through the floor (to be) and into the we-haven't-yet-decided-what-for room.

Cool.

The Roof

Reclaimed tile roof

The roof, made from an awesome wood frame (shown here) and special one-way breathable waterproof fabric stuff, and then covered in tiles. Reclaimed, second-hand, pre-loved, tiles. Moss included, no extra charge.

Naturally, lovely Fay found the tiles.

PS roofing by the Danny Dyer.

The next storm coming

Another storm coming

Wet. Wet. Wet.

And on the horizon, the next atlantic storm system moving in from the South West.

Hints of spring

Hints of spring

Opposite the front garden, the first hints of spring.

Amazingly, the snowdrops have survived the builders trucks too. At least, so far they have.

Impulse buy, waiting for @fgw. It's thick. It needs to be.

Wet, very wet.

I really miss the trees. These two Sequioas sit across Bob's field at the entrance to Castle Meadows. Grandstanding

Flying as if from a cannon

Ewok Jump

Yup, blurred image. Shutter speed too slow to capture motion and avoid shake. But, I'm sure you can tell it's a flying Ewok nonetheless.

Tonight's job: matching roof tiles.

View

View from the nearly bathroom window

The view from the to-be-bathroom-window.

All we have to do now is to figure out how to position the bath so we can enjoy the view.

Progress

It's getting there. To think, we started with this. Tricky bits to come...

Ketchup Sir?

Some ketchup with your fries sir?
