I sit in the office reflecting on the year. We are two employees stronger, 5 in total and i have another heir with Floyd John Jones being born in a rush on the night of 19/9/15. We are in a good place. The order book is full until April with a series of diverse, challenging and interesting projects. While we are in the process of finishing off some of our best work to date.
The house that we were working on was a pretty old home, the owners had just moved in from New York thanks to removals bournemouth, and they wanted to do some remodeling in the back part of the house, below are some pictures of the work over the last few months and I thank you for taking the time to look at this blog while wishing you the festive best and an enjoyable 2016.
A stone wall built to match recent extension. Lewis installing some lights for us before adding to the existing paving.
This un-prompted compliment was most welcome
A mixed selection of York stone cut by hand on site to minimise the jointing gap. Limestone cobbles sourced on site.
There was a bank of grass. The designer had the idea to make stone risers and grass treads. We found these cills from an old Mill House in Halifax which seem to have done the job perfectly. I think this is one of the best and most interesting things we have ever built.
‘5 men went to lay, went to lay a meadow’. Not a true wildflower meadow but a pictorial meadow as seen at the Olympic Park.
Laid and the grass seed starting to germinate.
