It must be summer!

Martyn and I usually try not to post about the same thing on the same day but today is the exception.

Yesterday was 'S' day - in other words it was the day that the summerhouse arrived and it seemed that it couldn't wait to settle into its new home.

At 7:30 in the morning the knock came to the door announcing the arrival of the construction team - I wasn't even dressed but fortunately Martyn was up and ready!

By the time I got downstairs (and I wasn't very long) the work had started. So I sneaked upstairs to take a quick photo.
We were a little concerned that the size of the summerhouse would dominate our garden but everything seems to be in proportion.
Now all it needs is to be furnished - we resisted the urge to sit on the floor to eat our dinner last night - and the area surrounding it needs finishing off.

  1. It looks fantastic, Sue, you must be well chuffed. I think it's design fits in so well with your garden. Now hurry up and get it furnished so that you can enjoy all it has to offer.

  7. Oh I love your summerhouse. I immediately ask hubby whether we can have one when we have our own place. I am not a morning person...hahaha...if people come around that early I will ask hubby to entertain while I get dress.
