    Back right corner

    The 12x2 shuttering got recycled as raised veg beds and most went in those, the rest in new flowerbeds - it was decent topsoil.

    Looking good there Rusty, brickwork looks neat to my eyes at least.

    Cheers - I'm pleased enough with it - not done much brickying, and I'm sure a real bricky would think it pretty average, but I think it will be OK - the blockwork will all get hidden under cembrit cement plank cladding. I'm better with wood, but as we cancelled all our hols this year and I had the time, thought I would have a go myself...

    Sales Director for an SME. But 40 years of serious DIY and have always had a go at anything. These days youtube and forums (and companies own "how to install our products" downloads) is such a mine of information that the technical knowledge you need to do anything is out there. I've built a few garden walls in the past but nothing previously above about 8 courses...

    Far side roof already slated - 1/4 way down the other side. Coming along - very pleased with how it's going - biggest building project I have ever done myself (with significant other's help).

    BTW, I know that last top slate is twisted - it's coming off.....

    Tidy that. Didn't fancy doing it properly with a wet verge then? ;) :D Nice job.

    No, its the kytun dry verge - saw someone using it and thought it looked really neat

    As you see, I'm using slate hooks too, which for a DIY slater I think is much easier.
