A walk on the south side - no 2 in a series of walls

One of the lovely features of this house is the terrace - a second room in the summer. It has the same orientation as the last house but is wider and has walls at each end which keeps the wind
out meaning we can use it over a longer period.

The original terrace
The walls were covered in render
The original roof

It  had to come down
Lying the screed
The render was taken off

Then the walls were repointed
Ready to share with friends and family

Shutters painted

The finished result

Did I say finished? There's one thing left to do - tile the floor but that will have to wait until we come back from our holiday.We love our new terrace and look forward to sharing it with friends and family.
