Thanks Jeff :) The landscaping was about half the job. House & garage/barn representing the other half. We gutted the house back to the weather tight shell, relaid the roof, & did a total interior fit job (ceilings, lime plaster walls, complete beam renovation, kitchen, bathrooms, etc - you get the picture). Garage/barn was a complete build from the frame up, although most of the frame structure & roof was in place (but needed relaying).

I'm most pleased with my little log store! Strange eh? I built it totally from materials lying around the site. Total cost = zero :)

I'm constantly in trouble with "she who shall be obeyed", but for the opposite reason ;)
