Not much to write home about! It's been very much a stop and start project.
Door on left is kitchen door. Every morning since I have a cup of tea looking out at the hills.

Looking great, it'll be so good to chill out on that terrace on an evening.

Looking better than when you were dealing with the mysterious underground concrete structure in the garden. I cannot wait to see it completed.

I cannot wait to be finally sitting on the terrace.
Looking out of the new doors/window up the hill we find it very calming. Before we had just as per attachment.

The photos from inside looking out don't do it justice. The view is a 'die for killer view' .... I think what we've paid for the doors and window has probably raises the value of our house by double the value for the works we paid. The building boss partner has been here a few times .... I swear .... She'd like her partner to buy our house!!! No way.

I'm actually flipping mad that what we thought was a septic tank underneath this 1m x 2m slab cover was just soil! The nearby septic tank was filled with old bricks left behind by previous owners plus rubble and soil. I'm so glad we didn't listen to our friends advice to put a garage under the raised terrace. It would have wiped away a huge chunk of our garden and the logistics having discovered the septic tank would have created too many problems.

Nick, what a view. I have a Forest view as well but another landowner decided to cut a gulley behind my property so his sheep could get to another paddock he owns. Only problem is, he cut it in a Natura 2000 protected zone. Of course no one was happy about it but since he is somehow connected he will likely get away with it.

Oops, I should have said my mother-in-law property is up the hill to the right and camouflaged by those trees you see.
I'm at our breakfast table drinking a coffee and looking up to the hills. Very relaxing.

Right now feeling quite annoyed our large stiff bristle brush has gone missing. No idea if builders took it by mistake or was it the window fitters. Doubt it was the latter. Had the broom for fifteen years. Wanted to sweep up mess left by builders and window fitters but no broom!
