Our new upstairs garden.......

It isn't quite finished, but here it is anyway - our new turf roof. We have a fantasy that this will transform our lives! OK, not just this, but the roof and insulated walls and floor combination. At the moment we lose all the heat from our stove (located on the inside of this wall) to the outside elements - basically we spend a fortune every year heating the miles and miles of open fell. This summer's ongoing project has been to improve this gable end and get the lean to watertight and insulated. After making the small window you can see on the photos, Phil is set on making the larger window too, then, of course, we still need to break up and replace the floor, install doors and insulation, replace the toilet etc. Still some way to go then........
