And it's turned the clutter into the start of something more elegant! The guys arrived on time and apart from the fact that the handles are wrong, all went well, we love it. We have ordered the kitchen window at the end to match but of course the factory is closed for August so it won't be here for a while.
I seem to have spent days taking the front door to bits and scraping inches of paint off it, filling the holes and priming the rest. At the moment I think I will return it to its dark green because there is so little left of the original house so it would be good to keep something. (One of my first thoughts on seeing the new window was how long it's going to take me to paint it :-( )
Meanwhile Him Outdoors has finished propping up the beams on his new wall in the cellar and has moved on to repairing what will be the back door.
And it's sunflower time again
