Gravel delivered!

 Gravel ready to spread.  Next Monday the planting starts which is very exciting.  I have a full list of all the plants and they are going to transform the garden so stand by to be amazed!

More windows!

First windows (nearly) in

 This is NOT an opener!! We didn't want one of those Juliette balconies so leaves a good view to the garden from the library/fourth bedroom

Watch the garden progess

If you go to www.aptstudios.co.uk and look under "News" in April, August and September you will be able to see the garden progress and there is a good plan on there too of the finished design.  More photos tomorrow as I haven't been up there since Thursday last......

Thanks to Ully for these early photos

Look how far we have come!

Bibby on another windy day!

Bibby always seems to bring the windy weather with her!  Felt a bit wintry up there today as well.  We had lunch in the Hare and Hounds and caught up with the family news which was fun.

Builders' Fashion Page!

Malc sporting shorts and woolly socks!!  You would have thought they would have learned by now that the temperature at the barns is always colder than anywhere else in the county....
and Dell - with clothes on this time!!

Roofwork nearly completed


Ol, Zaira and the stonework

Ol and Zaira were with us for the weekend - lots of prediction whist and hedgehog saving!  If you look at the wall behind them (sorry O and Z!!) you can see three stages of stonework;  the original on the right and above the door;  the mortar removed on the top left and the finished effect bottom left....

Garden progress

This is the stone area outside the study/bedroom - the room with the arched window.  The blue tiles have been lying around at Ewerby ever since we have lived there - 10 years now - so it is good to see them being used.  The area outside the kitchen will be similar to this.
