Reasons to be cheerful - part 8

My 200th post and I can celebrate knowing that the West Barn (sounds like the Chinese Room or the Green Wing) is wrapped inside and out with scaffolding, that tarps have been secured over the cob, and that demolition has stopped and building has started. If you look very closely on the left side you can see just a few new cob blocks in place. Click on the photo if you want a BIG view.

200th entry. Congratulations.
Looks like serious building work there.

Yay indeed, Paula. But I hesitate to relax on the water pipe front - the stuff has a mind of its own.

Yes, Eurowoof, it is serious stuff and that's just the first of two!

Call that Sarah Beeny off Property Ladder. She'll sort you out with advice on en suite bathrooms and keeping livestock off the patio.

Mopsa said...

Nah Mr Tunnock teacake. It's for animals, not folks.Sarah Beeny ain't the gal for that type of advice. But she can set you up for an internet date apparently.

It looks like it could win the Turner prize.

Pretentious? MOI?

I'll leave that to Christo, KAZ.
