Ups and Downs

The new staircase and a glimpse of the geotechnical survey where Mike meets his namesake...

Currently languishing in a salvage yard, this fine Victorian staircase will one day lead down from our first floor deck to the garden.

The geotechnical survey involved digging five deep holes with a big digger.

Geologist Tim Coe (probably no relation) inspects the soil.......

.....and takes samples to be analysed in the laboratory.

Mr Coe and Mr Coe consider a hole in the ground.
