The court yard has never really looked how we would like it to, so in the spring of 2010 improvements were planned. A new roof on the bread oven was first on the list, followed by a complete new set of gravel in the courtyard which has really lifted the look and feel.
|The courtyard when I first saw the house back in 2003 - seems a long time ago now!||Over the years it has proved to be a struggle to keep it looking nice and the weeds often take over|
|Work started to renew the roof on the bread oven and potting shed||Cutting up the tiles to fit the edges of the roof|
|The old roof had a few leaks in it, which didn't help the wooden frame!||Starting to take shape and what a great improvement|
|The finished roof, which looks great and so much better than the old tiles we originally had||The finished product with the new roof and the new court yard gravel which had been delivered and then spread....|
