Sometimes it just keeps coming at you.
Deliveries? More about that in a moment.
September, we got our electrical cables buried and rainwater soakaways dug.
Then we were lucky enough to find some AMAZING wood for our internal window sills and seat. This is London Plane, also known as Lacewood:
Got it home in the landrover:
Started installing the cills – we were so taken with the waney edge that we decided to keep it:
Then, it snowed!
As we continued, we were more and more taken with this natural, asymmetric edge. Our cills became wider and wider, more like little tables than cills, but Very Beautiful!:
And the window seat:
We’ve been working flat out because our plasterer wants to start next week. And then the news, please could our piano come home to Easterdown this week? Luckily West Somerset Removals had a spot the NEXT DAY! I have to say, we’ve moved that piano about 9 times since 1981 when I bought it, and these people are probably the BEST piano movers I’ve ever seen. Roderick James Architects had designed the cabin so the piano could fit, but I was a bit nervous that it might or might not…
Phew! Because if it hadn’t, the bed wouldn’t come down anymore. Luckily it’s all just FINE! And I’m so happy to have it with us again.
And we are ready for the plasterer next week. Exhausted though!
