Verandah gets fixed

Thanks for all your wonderful comments on the painting post. I'm still pinching myself in disbelief that it is finally done.

Alex the Builder has also been busy this week fixing our very rotten verandah. It has long been a source of discontent here- Mark wanted it fixed ASAP, I didn't want to spend the money- but finally it is getting done.



 Those poles are supposed to be attached to a piece of decking....



Once the broken, rotten wood was removed the full extent of the damage shocked me. I'm very glad now that we decided to get this done sooner rather than later.

Oh dear. I just had deja vu. Don't you feel much better having your balustrades fixed? I sure do. xx

A big project but will be worth it when you're finished. I'm a bit like you, my hubby wants to get all the practical things done first but I would rather spend the money on the 'nice' makeovers. Enjoy your weekend. Ange

The downside of living in houses made of wood- lots of fixing and painting.I bet that was scary with a tiny girl.
