From shed to warehouse
November 8th, 2010 | Uncategorized
We live a very dull and sheltered life here in Galicia, where simple things (such as renovating an old outbuilding), become just a little more exciting and important than they probably should. To give you an example, the highlight of our weekend could be a visit the town centre of Barrantes to watch the traffic lights change or perhaps a visit to the local supermarket…… as you may surmise, not much happens here in this quiet corner of Spain, and more especially in winter!
What I guess I am trying to say is that you’re probably all quite bored with my story of rebuilding our ‘garden shed’, but I did at least felt compelled to bring this tale to some sort of logical conclusion.
Above, you can see the rather dramatic transformation – from a pretty run down, delapidated storage area, with old wooden beams, exposed brick walls and a leaky roof, into something altogether a bit more modern, weatherproof and presentable.
It all goes to show that our work here is not always as glamourous as you might think!
