I wasn’t losing my mind thinking that I’d taken other photos: I had, and they were on the camera I’ve been using to date for this project. So, here goes with Feb 2017…part 2!
“The field” looking a bit sparse but with a big pile of salvaged silage plastic in the foreground – great for sheet mulches
The front / veg garden in progress…
Just outside the front door there are two thin borders which are a cacophony of primulas. And look even more stunning when Chris has been weeding
Trying to capture those elusive snowdrops/daffs/crocuses near the washing line again…
Crocuses next to the front door
The attic progresses slowly – and having removed the old, gebroken window ledge the window ledge support was rather handy for long bits of pipework in the hot water system project
Lovingly insulated by Chris & co, this is the new come for the header tank for our new gravity fed hot water system & radiator
What could be more exciting than a header tank?
Awaiting final connections at this point, but this little radiator means we’ve got a heat sink for heat from the range in the kitchen…and a way of getting wood-powered heat up to the attic
Pipes, you say? Running along the “landing” at the top of the attic stairs – mid way along you can see the large hunk of stone that needed a channel gouging out of it for said pipes
And the hot water tank itself – it was a very tight squeeze getting the cupboard door back on…but it was managed!
