Just because I have not posted very much recently does not mean there is nothing going on here at ‘The Castle’.
We have had 2 phone calls in the past 48 hours to confirm that some of our plans are coming to fruition. The first was from a tree lopper to confirm that he will be here early next week to remove a couple of very large trees and mulch them as well as the smaller ones that GMan cleared recently.
Once this is done we will be able to consider the next step in some of our long-term landscaping plans.
Yesterday we received a quote from the builder for the next major renovations. This will include replacement of some of the verandah floorboards, new railings, cafe blinds and screening and gate to provide added security to the verandah area. Some more concreting to finish the path near the steps and provide a base for an additional water tank will also be done. We will discuss the finer details with him this weekend and hope that the work will be completed with the next couple of months.
It is great to feel that some of our planning to beginning to come to fruition.
