Sanding top of our old kitchen dresser
We've now come more or less to the end of the build. Several quotations come to mind but I'll restrict myself to - "what a long strange trip it's been".
We started this a long time ago, seems like another lifetime and at last the end of the tunnel is definitely there.

We had another housewarming come Golden Wedding celebration for Wendy's parents (plus family and a few friends (27 in all)) last weekend, the house again proving a pleasant venue for social soirees.

The house itself is now down to finishing touches - painting and tiling, selection of fittings (spent an hour yesterday looking at curtains). I've added a few photos but this is really to thank everyone involved - without your help we wouldn't have got there,
