With five weeks to go before our build begins things are really starting to pick up a pace. I met with the Harbour Conservancy yesterday, new fencing is being installed tomorrow and a skip arrives on Friday to dispose of the remains of our damp garage.
Talking of which, I told you last week that we were considering our options with what to replace it with. Well now we have FINALLY made a decision… and we’ve placed an order. I obviously don’t have a photo of the one we’ll be getting (it’s being made in a factory somewhere as we speak) but this is the (half painted!) model at the show village we visited…
It’s 5×3 metres externally and about 4.5×2.5metres internally due to the width of the insulation. The idea is that when it arrives (in about 6 weeks) it will provide much needed storage during the build and then will become my sewing room – yes!
On this subject, I asked Jim how he would feel about me escaping into the garden “for a couple of hours at a time” (I was feeling brave) and his response was “If it means I can get away from the drone of that sewing machine, it will be wonderful!” (That’s spousal approval right?)
You can finish these buildings in any colour you choose, so ours will match the cladding on the house and I have so many ideas for the inside. I’d like a small space for photography (probably something like a backdrop that can be rolled away) a big table for sewing and somewhere to hang all my mini quilts. It’ll be the end of the summer before I claim it as my own space, but I can’t wait!
