One of the oldest period features we have in our house is a barn door that goes to the 19th century. When we viewed the house, there was an elegant, vintage lock on the back of the door – this was removed and replaced by a cheap, office-looking rim lock by the time we moved in.Continue reading Installing a new rim lock

I am going to preempt this post by saying that we have never built anything from scratch, so when the air source heat pump was installed, it was an outlandish thought that we should build a log store around it.
We have a garden store in our back garden that measures approximately 1.5 x 4 metres, which is a great space. When we moved into the property it was completely under-utilised and only had one shelf. This was a quick and easy DIY project that we undertook, and put in a lot of shelving to store our tools and gardening equipment making it a highly useful room.
