Wednesday, we met the architect who will hopefully be signing off our property at the end!!! Very interesting man to meet and we found out a little more, for example a better idea about how long the building has been awaiting finishing!! As well as some general goss about the previous owners!!! Oo the intrigue!!! Lol!!
Anyway Wednesday I spent the day clearing the slurry pit and the big piece of grass by the tin hut using the strimmer!
A quick after on the slurry pit… And a before on the grassy knoll after James had attacked the nettle beds with the hedge trimmers!! James attacked the banks and the bramble patches behind the slurry pit which I left the previous visits, because the strimmer wouldn’t go through them, with the hedge trimmers!! Scything through large brambles like butter, albeit butter straight from the fridge!!!
This prepared the land for some of our visitors which will be in posts later in the week!!
Thursday morning James’ parents arrived with our “new fitted kitchen” for the tin hut!! In the form of some plastic shelving!!! Hurrah!!! Storage spaces for all our clutter we seem to be collecting at the tin hut!!
Thursday was mainly a day filled with quotes quotes and more quotes!!! We had a window quote, an electrician, a plumber, and an Anglian window quote, where the apprentice was sent out first to start measuring followed by the branch manager!!! The apprentice turned up and despite me standing on the drive drove over to next door and knocked their door!!!! Before being sent across the road to a waiting me!!! Most amusing!! I could resist a quip about the fact that they have windows and we currently have a deficit in that region!!! Especially considering our barn would have been the first thing he saw coming up the lane, not the neighbours house!!!
In between the quotes we managed a small amount of clearances!!! But more about that in another post!!
