In the five year plan my hubby had for our home a Veranda was well up on the list along with some other changes he wanted to do.. So after a large project he completed on the main part of the house last year he took pencil to paper at Easter and sketched a few ideas down.. He quickly got underway and dug the foundations..

This is the frame up and first stage of the roof.. The windows and slates came next
The floor and baulistrad came next..
Fun part for me now.. Dressing this wonderful space..



We wanted a swinging seat and so hubby once again had to design and make one.. It is simply perfect



I had to share this.. In the old barn there was some old horse irons and we made this great hanging candle light.. So pretty at night..
This is the most wonderful place to sit in the garden we all just love it and have sat here every evening this summer.. Glad you have stopped by..

Please feel free to leave a comment I love to read them..

I bet you have made good use of your new verandah this Summer. Perfect for sitting out in the evening too, even if the odd rain shower appears, you will be well protected.

It's so beautiful Angi. What a cozy relaxing place to sit. I bet the rain sounds wonderful on the roof while you're cozy on the swing.

That door is really neat and I love your light.

Oh Angi, I'm so happy for you. You've fixed it up so nice and cozy. We've got a front porch towards traffic. I'm too private to dress it up and enjoy it. I would love to have a veranda in the back yard though.
