From the messy desk of a procrastinating med student

The journey begins..

The talented man-thing has already been hard at work transforming my hideous, depressing, tiny courtyard into what will be a gorgeous, magazine quality haven for endless coffee drinking, shiraz swilling and outdoor dinner parties.

He's already replaced the crumbling fence and built a deck and the beginnings of a pergola. It's very exciting! Sort of like Backyard Blitz (except in extreme slow motion, the absence of twelve sexy sunkissed tradies sauntering around and, er, the fact that we actually have to pay for it!)

Here's the before pic:



So this weekend, the project is to build in a bench seat (that doubles as storage) so we can entertain more than one and a half people at a time. I earlier had the important job of holding things still. Then the man-thing bought a pair of clamps. Now I am redundant. (And to be honest, not shedding too many tears about it.)

Here is the 'before the seat' pic:



Will update progress!
