The Outbuildings

The stone and slate first outbuilding has an upper floor and is currently used as a metalworking machine room, parts store and gardening shed. Like all the other, profile-built, workshops it has a concrete floor, power and light.

The series of sheds going down the drive comprise a double unit holding the gasifying log boiler and associated heat store on one side, and a woodworking space on the other complete with long bench and storage; the main motorbike workshop with massive fitted wooden workbench; the subsidiary workshop currently used for cleaning and blasting, welding and press operations; the end storage shed with high storage at the back and the hay loft to the left.

These are followed by a storage shed with rooms under the hayloft and a semi-open area holding the roof water catchment tanks, fencing stores and the one-time chicken sleeping area, now used as storage. Beyond that again is a pair of 20ft freight containers separated by a wide concrete platform acting as the woodstore, roofed over and with windbreak weather protection to the rear. There’s also a greenhouse by the main garden.
