Workshop Progress
Here is a reminder as to how wonderful my wife is - six months pregnant, and up a scaffolding tower painting the workshop. The painting is finally finished - which means it is time for the floor to go down! Nothing spectacular; this is a workshop after all ...

Kitchen - finished!
Apologies for the absence; life is getting in the way, particularly with a baby ten weeks away! Shall we catch up with the kitchen? Even before the joinery was finished, we ordered the flooring. This was a bit of an indulgence - we bought Karndean flooring,...

Project Kitchen
This one has been a long time in the planning - and quite a long time in the doing! Our cottage came with a serviceable kitchen when we arrived in 2013 - it was perfectly useable, and allowed us to concentrate on other projects, but we weren't happy with it...

2015; A Year in Review
Sometimes it is easy to forget how much you have achieved. Renovating a house is no different - things get crossed off lists, new lists get written and you can feel like no progress is being made. To counter this - and give a good morale boost - here is a p...

The Door Painting Factory
So, the theme this week is painting. We've been painting non-stop and there's still loads to do. Last Saturday saw the first delivery from our new, shiny trade account at Howdens - four doors, doorframes and weather seal, in an attempt to finally make the W...

Converting the Barn
So, with the Wedding finished and everything packed away, it was time (after a quick mini-moon in the name of tradition) to start converting the Barn. It was a lovely space when all open, but the building would become much more useful if divided up. The end...

The Wildmoor Wedding
The day was finally here - our wedding day! We wanted to have a real 'friends and family' feel to the event - and in the days preceding the Big Day we were snowed under with helpers, advisers, visitors, supper and overnight guests. We had SUCH fun and it wa...

The Barn - Cladding and Glazing
I don't seem to have many pics of this stage for some reason... Here was a bit of test-fitting of the oak cladding - I attached a softwood frame to the oak beams, and then screwed the cladding to these softwood studs. Stainless screws throughout to prevent ...

Simon's Stag Do
While the dwarf walls were being built, I decided to pop off for a weekend away. I'd briefed my Best Man (my chum JB) with very specific parameters - no strip clubs, no big groups of blokes, no awful drunkenness, no being-tied-naked-to-lampposts; in fact, n...

Garden Room - Dwarf Walls
With something like a fortnight to go before our Wedding (and DIY in-the-garden-and-Barn reception) we contracted the building of the dwarf walls that we'd need for the building of our side extension Garden Room. Yes, it was a bit last minute - but the natu...
