Where does the time go!?


It seems like 5 minutes since I wrote the last post on here, but it seems it's been a while.

We've been out buying bathrooms and tiles for the floor and walls these last weeks, it takes a lot of looking to find the perfect tile!

As well as floating from showroom to showroom, we've got both lads home for the 6 week summer school holiday, so it's not so easy to just pop out for a few hours - since we'd have to take them both with us. It's not SO bad though, I got to pop down the new place and do a little bit to my infamous shed.

The photo above was taken on my phone - apologies if it's not too clear - it was also taken a few days ago and it's changed a bit since then, but it gives a rough idea.

I have built the frame for the walls, and it's ready for the salvaged doors to be fixed to it. These doors will not only provide shelter from the elements, but also serve to strengthen the frame I've made, so making the whole thing nice and strong.

I started sorting out the roof yesterday, and I just have to measure and make the end piece before the rafters - then the exciting bit of putting the roof sheets on!

Once the shed extention is done, I can move the tractor/mower into it, shelve the main bit, and start bringing the stuff we have in our garage where we live now.

All very exciting - well it IS for ME anyway!

:0) looking good. I'm glad we're on the home stretch now.

The shed is looking good! Are you going to match the roof to the existing one? It will be so nice when you finally move in out here!
