The long awaited greenhouse

It has seemed like such a long time coming, but that's because it has been a long time.  Greenhouse envy was recorded here seven years ago in 2012, and after much saving, Robin McGregor has arrived to begin its construction.  I have never seen anyone work so hard and so meticulously.  He arrived mid afternoon to discover the builders' merchant had delivered the wrong bricks, spent much of the afternoon sorting that out, and then worked until late into the evening barrowing bricks up the garden the designated spot and digging the foundations.  He has spent three days camped out on our drive, working from dawn until dark to get the base ready.  He is now back in Wales constructing the frame and will be back soon to finish the job.  We are very pleased with the results so far, and excited that our greenhouse dream will soon be a reality.
