    Default The new commute



    Just waiting for plastering next week, decorating, final fix and electrics.

    Landscaping is finished next week (just some fencing, new gates, raised beds for veg garden, a little bit of paving and turf to lay), planting mid-October, should look awesome by next Summer.

    Been planning this for years now...can't wait.

    nice escape tunnel you got going there in the foreground.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    It looks very nice. I presume the fence on the left fences off your out-buildings and the hedge on the right is the start of the garden.
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    Well the bike is in the garage behind, so I'd have to double back...

    Is the circular pit on the left the new "visitors centre"....?

    Close. My boundaries are the long fence on the left, the back of the garage is part of the rear boundary and the row of the conifers on the right are on the boundary but we have a driveway on the other side of the right hand fence in the photo which I own but has shared access for the two properties to the rear (a former owner of this house divided off a huge plot of land to the rear and built two bungalows).

    There's some more fencing to go in to secure the rear of the "garden area", leaving a parking space behind the office and vehicle access to the RHS of the garage.

    Why have you built a small jacuzzi and a mirrored wall on your helipad (I realise you’ve dug up part of the H)

    The big pit is for the sunken trampoline, which will be partially hidden once the planting around it is established. My wife and children really wanted one, I didn't want one of those big ones which the huge netting around them, so this was the best aesthetic (and expensive ) compromise.

    I am within the weight limit though so I might have a go!
