Ready for the Hut

Mark became a labourer today and helped the gardener Jonny dig out the space for him to lay the slabs.  They picked the worst day to do it after the snow from last night.  I think he will have sore arms tomorrow.


We decided to put the hut to the right of the garden as this gets the least sun leaving space at the other side.  Also the fence is not as nice at the right so the shed will hide this.

All 15 slabs have been laid, Jonny kept working until there was no more light.  A quick tidy up needed tomorrow and then we will be ready to take delivery of the shed next Thursday.IMG_0015


Making space for the hut

We need a hut in the garden to store all the things we keep in the garage to be able to convert it into a room.  We ordered a 10 by 6 hut at the weekend which gets delivered on the 5th February.  We are still undecided where the hut is going to go.  In the strong winds a few weeks ago one of our trees blew down. which gives us the option of putting the hut at that end of the garden.


We spent last weekend chopping it up and filling all the neighbours wheelie bins.  Today Mark dug out the roots ready for the slabs getting laid later this week.


Starting the clear out

Thanks to Bungalow Blogger for helping me out tonight to get my blog set up.  I am really looking forward to recording the next few months as the building work starts.

Before the building work starts next month,  (hopefully) we need to start clearing out all the ‘stuff’ we have and move lots out.

There is a local jumble sale next weekend so lots has gone in the pile to donate there, and lots packed up in boxes.  The first boxes of pictures, bedding and towels moved to my mums today so all systems go.
