The house now looks like a house and it is really time to start on the long haul that is called finishing. People often reckon that this is the most expensive part of the build – I hope not or I will run out of money!
The local authority reminded me the other day that I should by now have submitted my landscape plan. I guess I have just been too busy trying to get the house built that I forgot. I have to do this and build the bat roost before I am allowed to occupy the house.
Angie found me a garden designer who is local to where she lives and who has an interesting portfolio of sympathetic garden designs. After meeting Caz on site we agreed that we would like her to plan our new garden and she duly came this week to measure up and identify the various levels in the garden. She called the garden a blank canvas which is one way of describing a half acre of chalk. We are looking forward to hearing her thoughts.
Also exciting is the fact the kitchen was delivered at the end of the week.
Our friends Linda and Andrew visited to observe progress and were caught up in the kitchen delivery! Next time they come over we hope to be able to prepare a meal for them.
