New Guest Accommodation

It has been a busy few days Martin has just left this morning and wont be home again until the end of next week, not long to go until he is here most of the time now.
Sol has had a couple of visits to the vet, yesterday he was taken in for an operation to remove a mass from his jaw, he is recovering well at home now, I have to take him back on Saturday for a check up and the results. 😷
Tess was weighed in this week at 30.7kg she has now lost a massive 9kg.🐕

We will bee having some major upheaval here this year as we will be starting on building work on the house.
The kitchen to be totally extended and re-fitted a big walk in pantry built, the utility room will be re-built. 
The bathroom is to be re-fitted out.
The barn at the side of the house is to be taken down, a new barn re-built down the field and then a two storey extension  built on the end of the house giving us a new spacious living room, and a lovely big spacious bedroom, both of which will give us views across the land, the existing living room will become a dining room.
👷🚧🏗👷
There will be total chaos, we will of course still have visitors during this time of chaos so we have some new accommodation for them.
 It arrived yesterday and we had a trial set up of it
 It has its own wood stove and coir matting that is on top of a waterproof ground sheet
 and sleeps 8 adults.
It has now been taken down and will be put up again at the bottom of the field, with a fire pit and outdoor cooking area, in a few weeks Martin has a group of friends who are coming to stay  for a few days, to help out with some things here, this is will be there sleeping quarters.🎪

Will post later about other stuff going on 😀
