First of all a few before pictures.
Then some finished things!
It has been a long journey to get all this done, but it all looks so good now that it has been well worth it, and more importantly, it is so good to know that the house is watertight again and that the water will all be draining away in the right direction, away from the house, not towards it!!
All credit for the hard work must go to my husband who has worked so hard on this project, I have been mainly support and design, and making sure that the cups of tea, cake and meals kept coming! We still have more to do and next summer I will prettify the patio a little more and paint the table and chairs and bench which I never got to, but it is well on the way and looks so much better than it did!!
