The previous owner of the property left us a vast amount of rubbish – the barn is still about a quarter full of his detritus as are a number of the outbuildings. Where he has had work done, there is still a lot of builders’ sand and other materials, including concrete blocks and road gravel. The latter we are putting to good use to clean up the surface of the driveway, as the photo shows. I think there’s enough left to go back to the road and maybe a little further in.
One of our longer term goals is to get the front of the house looking prettier, at something approaching zero cost. Watch this space!
