The man with the chain saw

This year our big project (we've got to have something going on to take up our time!) is finally getting our shack of a cottage sorted out. We're knocking down part of the house and adding on a rather large extension, which will bring together the "sleeping" and "living" areas rather than it all being higglety pigglety as it is at the moment. We're hoping to start the exentension within the next month or so, with it hopefully being finished by Christmas......




So, a couple of weekends ago we made a start, there is much demolition to be done before the builders can come in......a bit that Gregg is thoroughly enjoying! Out came the chain saw and down came the trees at the back of the stables, as we didn't want any little birdies nesting in there.......
Next is the stables to come down and the kennels moved, a storage area which will be greatly missed until a replacement is built. Then there is the back porch and spare room to come down, then we'll be in a right guddle! The back porch is probably the most used room in the house and belongs to the pooches so goodness knows where they are going to sleep once it comes down......Ah the joys......it'll be worth it all in the end. We'll have fun recording it on here though!
Off out to the studio to do some long overdue sewing!

i am sure we have huge logs delivered just so that a large amount of noise and sawdust can be made :)
