I am an inveterate horder of stuff that may come in useful.  These 19th Century granite blocks have been lying around for years waiting for me to think of something to do with them.

Well, I have some ideas (helped by @Madame Buttonfly's dictat "I down want any piles of fucking shite lying around here when you've finished the extension"), first of them....

Ha!

I can only imagine what it feels like to actually use items of the unthrowawayable hoard (of shite) I’ve gathered.
One day...

The wood store was knocked up by Les yesterday and today.  Timber needs staining and the coping stones mucked in.....

That right there is the difference between framing in Norway and framing in the UK. Simple structure, but the span between those two 2x4 posts would necessitate a post in the middle in Norway. Because snow.

FTW is a favorite of mine. I picked it up from a crane operator/hells angel, who in the 80’s, would regularly paint that on the side of container ships in 10 foot white letters. Gateway terminal port in new haven CT. FTW indeed
Maybe so. Maybe not
