Vast fun

Will post photos of the new outdoor fireplace soon – prettying the thing up a bit for photos for a poss. major national newspaper slot, and a magazine or two.  Were in front of it until 1am this morning – grilled beef fillet and rather a lot of wine.  Great fun.  But… the doors have been bought that will form part of the facade of the ‘shed’ – though it is plainly going to be more summerhouse than storage for spades.  Here’s the pic….  The side windows come from a previous house, where they fronted a sort of china niche, though were themselves clearly once part of a cabinet or bookcase.  Anyway, windows is what they next become – poor things have been waiting for a function, piled indecorously in the old collapsed shed for nearly twenty years.  The joiner arrives to put the whole thing together at the month’s end.  Exciting.

trying out the new shed 'facade'...
