The latest at Pannells Ash Barn – March 2012
|Two days work on the hedgerow
has made it look much bette
Blood, sweat and … bruises
Still the delay has given us time to get to know the property up close and personal clearing a lot of the overgrowth. And there is no shortage of it!
I am begining to learn the importance of discovering the true vistas of the property, especially as the plans are easier to alter now than once the build has started, however even now every alteration is a fresh drawing.
Sleeping at the barn has provided fantastic nights of star gazing -the lack of ambiant light means that on clear nights looking at the stars is a joy. And the early mornings have enabled me to meet the local deer, pheasants and rabbits and a few things I still need to identify. Oh yes, and Jane who delivers the post with a smile.
The project needs to progress though and a great deal of expense looms. We have invited four builders to pitch for the build which will be interesting – it is one thing buying the place believing you have the budget to convert it into your dream, but the reality I’m sure will be a bitter pill.
We’ll be back soon with another update, fingers crossed, with much more development to report on.
