Conservatory Update….

It is all go here at Birdwoods with the building of the new Conservatory and Terrace well in progress. The roof is on, framing done, candelabra in place, window frames being made.  Grant Linnell Builders are doing a great job and we are on target to open November 12th 2011.

Here are a few photographs to show you where we have got to.

View from the sculpture garden.

Great roof space.

Thanks to Bay Scaffolding and an in-house-husband-scaffolder Bruce to reach the high bits.

The new Terrace along with safety nets – this will be lovely when drinking our home-made lemonade on  a hot summer day after having strolled around the sculpture garden and selected the perfect piece!

Believe it or not – the two metre wide candelabra wrapped up and in place looking like a giant spider!

Vicky Turfree – our wonderful gardener’s new Cherry Tree Walk and wildflower paddock with fine gates made by Noel Sangster, a retired carpenter and car collector.  A sculpture will be positioned at the end and lawn growing now in progress.

Our local Council Man  has been and inspected the building and all is as it should be thanks to Fat Parrot Architecture, good builders and immense patience and self control by the owners!

Archie went to the Dog Groomer recently as he and Black Dog had been rabbit hunting ….

 Back from the hunt and in disgrace!

Not loving the groomers!

Go the French ….. not really –  he is a supporter of All Black Dogs…..

Until next time, thank you for reading.  Louise and all at Birdwoods x
