The work on the valance has begun. Bright and early on Saturday morning, it was a hive of activity at the Sow's Ear.
Mr D, our builder, is also back. Jason was so happy to get the extra assistance, company and use of better quality tools. It's never much fun doing this kind of work by yourself with the bare minimum of tools...
Together, the two of them accomplished quite a bit in the morning. All the frame work is up and ready for the palings to be nailed on to it.
If all this nice weather holds up, the valance should be finished by next week. Here are a few photographs from the weekend...
