Thursday 11th May 2017 – Front Garden

The Iris this year have loved the lack of water. They have tolerated the dry conditions very well despite the ground being rock hard and the flowers are beautiful.

Day 196 – Thursday 4th May 2017 – LAST DAY of work on phase 2

Day 196 – Thursday 4th May 2017  – LAST DAY of work on phase 2

Workmen finished today on Springdale after 196 days of men on site.  Work has been on going since June 26th 2016.  Plumber – Marcus Kelly and his mate Josh completed their work on the upstairs bathroom and radiators in the sunroom, bedroom and study.  Their work looks first class.  Springdale is now a totally different place to the house we bought over 2 years ago.

Internal work is still to be completed, but this will be on going for some time.

Pictures of the upstairs bathroom work can be seen below.
