Default making a gate

We've been so busy with boring stuff, roots growing the drains, insulation, etc, hardly stuff for a before and after.:)

But we have a small before and after.

take a old gate, old fencing panels and make a new gate :)

Thank you

Oh yes its amazing to look around, from a place with no water, no electric, holes in the roof, etc, to what it is now and we've done it all...

Still loads to do, this year was very much wasted because of the bad weather, so here's hoping for a better one next year :)

Great work tudlytops. I refurbished a cottage in North Kilkenny, which entailed making it more comfortable for my mobility needs so I can be independent around my home. I love what you have done with the doors, the small fireplace and the one for the stove.

Thanks to so many givers here on JT, what had seemed like a very expensive endeavour, which would take me a long time to complete because of my lack of finances, my little cottage is a piece of heaven now.

I found myself on a quest, to refurbish this little house with pre-loved materials, furniture and garden items. I received windows, floor tiles, garden slabs, from givers here on JT. Today I look at all the items, even the garden gnome, whom I christened Gnome Chomsky (grin) and I remember where they came from.

Looking forward to continuing following your progress.

Thank you :)

We doing the heating now, couldn't get a plumber at all, i think because we have all the materials needed for the job, so not much profit there, and we can't afford to have one do the whole thing from scratch, so we doing it yourselves to..:)

So its all research research research at the moment :)

@HappyHunter, sorry i hadn't seen your comment there...

We couldn't have come this far hadn't been for all the materials, furniture, even great advice we have gotten from so many people.

We keeping a diary and hope to make a blog and we will name everyone that helped us along the way...

There is so much that is not material for a before and after picture, but that it is just as important...

People have indeed been amazing :)

Default various bits

We got some free paneling from a neighbor :)

And we had to build a railing for when my back is bad, so we built a little gate two, keep the dogs from scratching the front door..

Wish we could have done it before moving in...

It's taken a lot of work and research and we only half way there...
