As I have said in a number of me posts we were busy with a big project, all is revealed here with pics.
We had a big koi pond for a number of years & thoroughly enjoyed it BUT the winters have been
getting longer & colder, hubby is getting older not saying anything bout me except time is also
running after me..lol We felt it was time the Koi should go to go to new homes, & the
20ft length x 10ft 6 width by 4ft deep hole should be filled in..not only were we filling in this
HUGE hole my dear hubby decided he needed another hobby! he would go back to growing fuchsias
as we have in the past, soooooo he NEEDS another GREENHOUSE..THEN the work began..arghhhh
this was the koi pond a couple of years ago..it did look at its best.
then the demolishing began in earnest.. You may well ask WHAT did I do answer EVERYTHING from designing the new greenhouse knocking down walls, to using jig saw /hammering in nails, ordering wood & supplies, painting & of course keeping hubby right I’m a metric girl & hes a Feet/Inches guy..lol
Hole is at last full & Top soil is all in place just waiting for more gravel to come BUT hubby is impatient & wants to start placing & erecting.. we made it in sections easier for erection..LOL puffing & panting..
comes to mind..
heres hubby looking all serious, I managed to paint the frame BEFORE he started putting in the polycarb which we used for windows.I didnt want glass for safety reasons when our lovely sweet Mia comes to play at nanaseasides..the rest of the gravel was laid here to.
tadaaaaa FINISHED, the path inside is laid with flag stones/gravel, chair already waiting, hubby is a bit unhappy with the wood..when we bought it & had it delivered it was quite wet, with all this heat & sunshine its dried out to fast & left some gaps..am just looking away so I cant see them.. NOW I have 4wks + gardening to catch up on..dont think I will get thro it this summer.. my poor crafting has defo come
2nd place this summer..
thanks for looking if your still here..lol
