    Thanks.

    It's been a joy doing the garden but not liking the job of pointing it all up.

    The next job is building a garden room at the end of the paving and will try update the thread when I get time.

    Today I got up to roof height working in the rain.

    I will try felt lat and tile it over the weekend.





    1 good thing about the paving is it should be easy this year to clean up the mess the tree is making.

    Thanks john.

    But I could do with some help now as I have been out to bye hardwood to make the bi folding doors and getting stupid prices.

    I need around 26m of 50mm x 100mm PSE oak and getting quotes of around £500.

    Any cheaper places please because the bi fold fittings are going to cost me £250.

    That's what I thought.

    I have fitted some upvc bi folding doors now as it would of cost over £1000 with all the track locks and glass and timber.

    I will put some pics when my phone gets some charge in it.
