Studio renovations

Three weeks ago work started on our building at the bottom of the garden. It needed it. After stripping back all the old wood it was looking very touch and go, you could move the building by holding on to the side joists.  

We think the building was built back in the 1940s, it's all cedar wood and had lovely cedar shingles on the roof. It was used as an Apple Store, an orchard was at the bottom of these gardens. (Can't seem to rid the type spell check above!)

So now work is taking place and it's being given a new lease of life. Mark Salanson a good friend could see the possibilities of the building and had big ideas for it.
