Not even three months have passed since we shuffled out of the big smoke to take up residence at The Old Farmhouse but SO much has changed in that time. My super-husband, Craig has been the driving force behind most of the activity around here, taking a day off work each week to do the majority of the building, as well as spending his commuting time on the train project-managing: sourcing building materials, getting quotes and organising tradies. Craig, you’re amazing!
The deck has been a labour of love and will add some spacious outdoor living to our old home. Wherever we can, we try to use reclaimed materials – Craig (with some help from my dad) has sourced some amazing old bridge timbers to use as beams for the roof.
The weekend brought a magnificent surprise when Craig and his helper, Paul began the process of fitting some salvaged French doors to access the deck. They removed the weatherboards to reveal this…..
Last night we dragged some chairs out on the deck amongst the timber and sawdust to enjoy the stunning sunset and soak up our little piece of paradise.
