Planting and plumbing

Standard

Done all the weed and grass planting on the path now, I think and have gone on to ponder the plumbing.  Gutters will have wait till there is actually a roof but the whereabouts of the down pipes and other bits needs watching.  At least one main one and a further piece of plumbing need to be attached to the wall towards the back of the yard without hampering the planned removable bit that covers the wiring.

The sink outfall reaches ground level, fortunately on the fixed bit of the path – the bit which holds the coal bunker which, in turn, sits over the lighting plugs and switches.  Am pleased to say that I can still lift the bunker, and everything that sits on it, in and out between the cricket bat at its front and this pipe at the back.

Various bits of stray greenery planted and, for some unknown reason, the kids have decided to upturn a bucket on the fence post

I added the bucket as that fence post seemed to lead to nothing and nowhere and I felt that the bucket gave it a ‘full-stop’ as it were 🙂

View from bucket to front gate, down the length of the path

Our little friend there, nosing around the fencing, looks very small from here, but she’s a full step down from the back area level.

Night has fallen, but the faithful nosey-parker is still at her post

  1. Hmm. must admit ceilings and roof do not sound either easy or particularly appealing but needs must and maybe when you get started things will flow and not be as daunting as you might be anticipating (fingers crossed) Good luck! You seem to have already achieved so much I am sure this will be old hat for you.

  2. Brilliant. Always love your incredible attention to detail and an eye for an ongoing story that each detail evokes.

    • So many thanks for your support. Next move the ceilings and roof? My, oh, my, I’m really not looking forward to that 😦
      Self inflicted wounds, I know 🙂
