Ground Works .... Watching Cement Dry ....

Day 10 - some star glazing .... Ben at work ...



Day 11 - Once the rotting old arched door was removed, the space really started to open up ... don't get me wrong, it was lovely and I do feel a bit bad about ripping it out, but it would have needed a lot of TLC, and we are looking forward to the extra space!



i see my coat hooks came in very handy during the work ... here is Ashleigh ...



here we are inside the porch, lots of men on site today, including a sparky and lots of veiws of yellow underpants ... I didn't catch the sparky, and I have spared you the underpants!



here is Mark back again, to drink some tea and ... erm ... :-)



and Ashleigh again, doing some work ...



Day 12 - Ben's long day ...



Remember my poor old front door? This very cold winter had really upset it, and the duct tape was to keep out the cold wind. And this door had always been protected by the outer, porch door!



Old Door, no more ... I like how the girls are all shorter than the new arched window ... hmmm, memories of BBC's Playschool!



New door from the porch side ... we like red!



Day 14 - Daisy was pleased to see Jamie back, along with Mike, to lay some slabs and poor my new porch floor ...
So now, im just watching cement dry, and longing to fill the space with wellies!

I also love a red door.

That red door looks very amazing! I wish you installed it on the front and flaunt its beauty though. We could never appreciate someone's (or thing's) beauty if it was hidden under the arch.
