3-12-11  The remains of the LARGE bonfire - 4 hours of burning..  It was all wet so a gallon of diesel worked wonders.  Note the start of the flag stones in the pathway.
Ooops!! Forgot my camera for the big fire!! It was massive!! 8 pallets and all the hedges and trees I dug out - now gone!!
 


10-12 First bit of snow..  Patented WheelBarrow path and AntiSlip steps - chicken wire nailed to the steps. Duncan helping me cart flag stones from the car park
using the new wheelbarrow path!! 


17-12 More snow...   Delivering another 2 security fence panels (roof racks are handy!!) and 20 flag stones - use a barrow from here down the centre road..


 All snowy today.... note all the piles of flag stones - still 20 in the car!!                Centre pathway now has all flags fitted - now to re-do the entrance area!!

 


28 December.....   My lorry...    Making my Cold-Frame... 1mt square x 1.8 mt high.. Using pallet wood and poly-carb from a conservatory roof..


Duncan helping me laying paving slabs with his "phone spirit level" app...

 
.... finished product in final position..


Before                                                                                                               After
31 December - Pulled up all the original temp broken flagstone pathway and replaced with full flags - much better now..  Old flags can do the storage area behind shed.


Also added a small lean to veranda on the roof to stop rain falling through the door opening..
