We got the garage doors fitted a week or so ago, these where made by an brilliant father and son carpentry team who live just down the lane from us, we pretty much gave them free rein with the design (something we would normaly micromanage the hell out of) as we knew whatever they come up with would be good and we weren't disappointed! Rich spend several long days getting these painted and they look super smart now, it also means we can then work on fitting his workshop out over the winter.
Once the floor was down we filled all the joints with wood filler then several coats of varnish to made it more durable, Rich then got on with laying the tiles out in the little court yard. Again we somehow managed to pick a product that was really fiddly to lay, note to future self, diamond pavers look great but are total shit to grout into place as you have to clear the grooves so the rain water can run off to the drain. Im not going to lie, I chose these because they look nice and never once considered them from a practicality point of view (Sorry Rich!).
We always wanted to use vintage industrial lights (some of which we've been collecting for years!) we teamed this with neon colouring wiring in different colours and we both have a thing about neon (can you tell we are children of the 80s?)
The second light is a British made bulk head light from a munitions factory, Rich brought this nearly 2 years ago because he thought it was cool and it been waiting for its moment ever since.
But I think this is my favourite...
Im off for a cup of tea an a nap!
