- We've just bought a house!!
Yay! Longer process than expected to complete but only a week over schedule which is great.
Very excited now but still got 4 more hours in work before I can go and get the keys. First job will be measuring up at the back of the back outhouse so I can build an appropriately sized wood store. I’m assuming best practise nowadays is get some old palettes on the floor, use some more palettes to make the side and then put some felt over the top for a roof? And then I can get the two tons of wood out of the outhouse where it’s causing condensation issues.

Wood store first
This will free up the huge outhouse to make into a proper bike shed/workshop plus beer brewing facilities. Jealously inducing pictures will be posted regularly 😉
We also need to get the wood stove set on a proper base with a nice back behind it.
We’ve still got to strip out and refit the kitchen which will take a couple of weeks and then house warming hopefully some time in August.Posted 4 years agoDickyboyMember
lucky thee OP – found out on Wednesday that half the front garden in the property I am (was) buying belongs to the council & the “allocated” parking bay is about as allocated as a sun lounger with your towel spread on it… few £££ down & back to the beginning again by the looks of it 👿Posted 4 years agonedrapierSubscriber
Happy Days, god bless your house and all that sail in her.
I had a meeting with our CEO this morning. The ink’s dry on a purchase of a house his wife picked. It was house number 4 on the list of 3 houses he sent her to look at, and he was due to see it for the first time this afternoon!
God knows what he earns and how much he’s spending blind. He seemed quite relaxed about it and his wife’s taste, but there was definitely some sewing machine leg going on under the table!Posted 4 years ago
I’ll be moving that big composter to the other side of the little wall and throwing out those two little compster things which are currently filled with this vile treacle stuff. I’ll need to put something down to level the ground and can then start building. Not sure whether I’ll fix it to the wall or not yet, probably will.
One question. Do people build their logs stores into sections so they can season wood at different times?Posted 4 years ago
