Last Monday and Tuesday two of the Waikanae hired hubbies came and did some DIY work here - well, more accurately they did some HSETDI (hire someone else to do it).
So now we have a length of fencing between us and Peter and Margaret's place and we no longer see Peter's rather tatty plastic lean-to glasshouse that he uses to store stuff in and raise seedlings.
|Apart from this lean to, their place is immaculate. The gate at the far end hides it from their view but not, until now, from ours|
|It did have the corrugated clear plastic on the side but that had to be removed so it wasn't on our side of the boundary and so the fence could be erected|
|David at the Narnia door a couple of months ago|
|After a day of tree chopping and trimming, Luke improved it slightly before he headed home, so at least we could get through it|
|Yay!! Internal access. Even Gary, at 6'7", doesn't have to duck! We have had a lock fitted and the last job is to fit coat hooks either side|
|This had 3 shelves that were so deep as to be pretty useless as they were impossible to keep tidy. They are fairly shared out now, I have 4 and David has 2.|
|Westie put the clothesline up and David has removed the small tree that was in the way. I am going to plant something fast-growing something against Russell's garage - an ivy perhaps.|
I am very impressed with the Hire a Hubby guys - they did great work for a good rate. They did enjoy the muffins Joe made for morning tea and declared they'd be happy to come back anytime!
And that's not all the progress, but further installments will be posted shortly.
