Clocks all working fine now – new hands, new varnish – and ready to be delivered. Tested them by hanging them on my workshop wall.

Not a hobbit’s house but it is in Northampton-Shire. I designed and built this pool house from scratch for a client: inside is the swimming pool electrics and equipment.
The garden was originally a flat rough lawn. Three weeks later there is a patio facing the sun and newly sown lawn edged with herbaceous cottage garden plants.
The frame of this scrambling net had uprooted from the ground. We made a new endpiece, dug out the rotten pieces, re-bolted the net to the frame and it’s all ready for Spring playtime.
Our customer today had unexpectedly found himself using a wheelchair. Unfortunately he was virtually trapped indoors because of the huge step down from his front door. He came up with a solution and asked us to fit an extra-wide gate in the fence in his back garden, which gave him access to the path along the side of his house. We cut into a flower border and made a new sloping concrete approach from the patio to the new gate. We were happy to prioritise this job to help him get his freedom back.
This was a small job to repair a rotten fence brought down by a smothering of ivy. The client removed the ivy himself and wanted to re-use the existing gate. We’re always pleased to recycle and reuse.
