When I finished the ten mtr fence for Hazel last summer she
said she would have me back in the spring to extend the decking
as a new kitchen door was to be installed.
Here I've installed a chassis with 500mm centres.
Front and back I screwed two 3"x2" in a L shape
and screwed them to the existing fence and decking.
Each joist has a centre leg screwed on and wedges where needed.

It's all overgrown through years of neglect,
but by the time I'm finished it'll be somewhere
nice for sunbathing and barbies.
- Here I've dismantled the old rotten shed and removed
- loads of rubbish, felled a few trees and started building the new
- ranch style fence.
More pics to follow.

As you can see, the drive is made from mud, gravel, tarmac and weeds so I get stuck in with pick and shovel and take it down about six inches.
The hired whacker plate compacts the base until it's rock hard.
Next comes a shutter made from sarking and stakes.
The Spotmix 07957450240 team arrive, and an hour or so later the concrete is poured, screeded and tamped. I went back the next day and removed the shuttering, laid a 20 year membrane at the sides and filled it with Balmullo chips.

Les and Fiona recently purchased this nice bungalow.
I've already done some fence work and painting, felled a few trees, tidied up the garden front and back, and they asked me to give the exterior of the house some tlc.
I think it looks spanking gorgeous don't you?

This job was way up the Angus glens. It's a holiday cottage with an extra bedroom lean-to on the west side of the building.
