Creating 'the farm'

We took possession of 32 The Esplanade in April 2017 and there was a lot of work to do to get old cottage back into a rentable condition, and to create the rear garden - what we now call 'the farm'. 

The rear garden was so overgrown you could barely walk around in it. 

The old shed was in need of some TLC. 

And the cottage itself had seen better days. 

Over the next year Greg (Granddad), a retired builder, transformed the property and we tore down the fence between our home on Goodlands Avenue and the rear garden at 32 The Esplanade to join the two properties together. 

 

We've still got a lot of work to do but...thank you Granddad !
