I won't win any awards for design or anything else but when the veranda is built above it will all fall into place.
While i was out getting timber i saw three Telegraph poles at the side of the road in a little village. It may be worth trying to find who owns them as they would make all the framework of my veranda. But for now i am happy with what i have done this week.
When it stops raining i will be able to clear the tools and blocks i left that you can see in the picture but who cares.
