Phase II

We've started to build the guest accommodation at the end of the field - or at least the slab is being put in. The rest will have to wait till next year. To comply with planning regs it has to be a temporary structure, under 4m in height and 4m from any boundary, so it will be a wooden lodge.

The excess earth has gone to make a ha-ha by the house.

And we're moving the Old Sodbury Dyke bit by bit to make the guest accommodation slightly more secluded.

Yesterday was our fist anniversary in the house. Loved every minute of it, but it's still a work in progress.


  1. It's all right putting all these structures up, but just wait until the Bedroom Tax bill arrives, you'll regret it then. I suppose you could always stick a sign saying Travel Lodge outside the gate and claim an Enterprise Allowance.

    1. Alan - it's more than made up for by the fact we only have 2 bedrooms in the main house - albeit the upstairs one covers the entire floor.
