24th May – 13th June 2015
Now that the circular patio was in, I spent the next 3 weeks working like a madman to get the gazebo built. It was full on, every waking hour outside of my job and took a lot more work than I thought it would! During this process, my friend John came to help for a couple of days, and just as well he did because getting the pointy rafters up would have been a nightmare otherwise.
Willow got really engaged with the construction and helped loads, digging holes, carrying bricks, measuring wood and passing me tools etc. Ju spent many, many hours staining wood, and was sick of the colour long before she got it all done. As is par for the course, this time was sprinkled with fire-pit burns and wine in the dusk 🙂
