Decking and Wisteria for Pergola

So I built the deck on the inside of the pergola, kind of made it up as I went a long – but it seems to have worked. Learnt a lesson to put the printed side of the timber on the inside – I forgot this lesson when I made the step at a later date.

Louise has planted the wisteria so we can look forward to that hiding all the imperfections!

Pergola built!

With a little help from Louise, I built the Pergola.

It’s not perfect, but it’s ours. Really you wouldn’t notice a slight oversight of measurement, and once covered in wisteria it will be lovely.

We will get some decking timber to run along inside.

Garden Update – Pergola Arrived

A quick less than artistic document of the garden. F8 and be there!

The pergola has arrived which¬†Louise¬†and I will be erecting, and we’re getting quotes for the patio area.

I’ve left it a bit late for the flowers, the irises were really lovely but are wilting now.

The pond is nice and clear and the apple tree has survived my heavy pruning.

A Tidier Lounge

There’s still quite a lot of paint touch ups to be done in the lounge, including most of the ceiling! But that’ll come later when we’ve finished upstairs.

I don’t think I’ve posted before the other end of the lounge with my desk setup – and since we just tidied for guests I thought I’d take a few photos.
