One brick at a time
Now I'm on holiday its full steam ahead with our building project. We are awaiting planning permission and Im trying not to think too much about that. The whole reason for developing this project is that none of the rooms on our house look onto the garden. The house is of its time when picture windows wouldnt be 'wasted' on the back of the house. If all goes to plan we will have a two storey extension built sympathatically and in keeping the rest of things, with views onto our garden and looking up to the church we were married in...aaah. If things dont go well, then ...well like I said, Im not going to think about that!
Either way we had to knock down the existing extension as the damp was horrific in there. I think BH was pleased to be getting on with something but I would rather be doing it with the next stage fully agreed. When you see it at this stage it looks pretty horrific - I keep reminding myself to have faith - I know that BH isnt planning a permanent outside loo!
BH is doing this on his own and I know he's getting fed up with barrowing rubble aready - hang in there BH, it'll be worth it just to get rid of those tiles!
It does mean that the top of the garden is getting some attention as neither of us can bear to look too much at the garden surrounding the gravel pit. I think I will follow the lead of many of the blogs I follow and focus on looking for a beauty spot each day, so that I focus on the right stuff.
Todays feelgood factor came from these...
