Our home has always had sections which are too small – our sitting room and dining room being the most “suffocating”. Then there is the lack of a workshop space for Pete. He has always managed to make a plan in the front of our extra length garage but sadly it has it’s limitations, especially when both our cars are in the garage.
We have often looked at extending the sitting room, dining room and garage as they are all on the front of the house but that is an extremely costly exercise so we looked into extending only the garage by another double garage size and do a “self” build which in reality besides still being expensive isn’t very practical with Pete being away as much as he is so plan B was implemented.
A Wendy House to be placed it in the garden next to the garage. Perfect.
Finally a dedicated area where Pete can be creative without having to work under cramped and uncomfortable circumstances and where he can lock up his tools without worrying about me getting into them for a project around the house while he is away. I have broken something before, oops!
Now just to wait for the roofing to weather before we can paint it to match the houses roof.
Pete is going “off the grid” as he says by using solar panels instead of conventional electricity for lights and plug points. That will have to wait though till he gets back from his business trip.
