Recycling rustic gems

We approach two garden sheds with the doors wide open, and from inside there emanates a racket that gives the impression of some fairly robust sawing and hammering. Along with the haze of sawdust that fills the air and has settled on most of the lawn, it is clear that there is some energetic woodwork going on inside.

Isobel hopes to ensure the rural survives for another 100 years

‘It’s not just a lot of old women sitt ing around sleeping, or sooking pandrops’

The buttered pancake is so fresh that the butter is slowing melting over the side. The tea cosy is on the tea-pot and the sugar dish and milk jug is arranged perfectly on a tray. Teacup is on the saucer and there is an extra plate of biscuits ... just in case.

Handcrafted log homes to your own design

When I think of a log home, I imagine something that has been built lovingly by hand, each log having been carved to fit snugly, the wonderful pine, woody, smell to linger for years upon entry and to be surrounded by cosiness throughout our winter weather.
