So this was end of stage 1:
So, in the end, we decided to go with sliding doors and windows on the eastern and western sides, and part walls on the southern sides. I found some used corrugated iron added to the part walls, and polished hard wood as railing on top to add some extra character....and this is how it is looking:
The view from my back door looking out into the garden (which is now ready for it's reno too!!)
I am loving the look of my new area, and now waiting for the addition of some new outdoor furniture to arrive, so then summer here we come, enjoy many a time out there with friends and family.......also possibly the addition of some blinds for the southern 'window' gaps, but at this stage it is not high on the list.
Thanks for popping by,
Hope you are having a nice day..
